Contents: "Ringil Eskiath, hero to anyone who doesn't know him, and a corrupt degenerate to anyone who does, wielder of the kiriath blade Ravensfriend and scarred hero of Gallows Gap. With the war long over and with nothing left to fight for Ringil lives in exile nursing his rage. But now a family member has come calling with an offer he can't refuse, a job only he can do, and a final chance to crank himself back up to the same pitch of fury that sustained him like a drug all those years ago. And the truth is, he really doesn't have anything much better to do in what remains of his hollowed-out life." "The lady kir-Archeth Indamaninarmal, abandoned kiriath half-breed, and last remaining advisor to the Yhelteth Empire on the abandoned kiriath technology she only half-way understands herself. She barely survived the war against the Scaled Folk, she has no family, no friends and no faith in the useless son of the ruling dynasty she supposedly owes allegiance to. The Empire's legacy is being squandered and she can't even remember why she ever cared one way or the other. But now a terrifying and apparently sorcerous enemy is threatening the Empire's borders and Archeth is chosen to find out what is happening." "And then there's Egar. Egar the steppe nomad, Egar the Barbarian --
or at least he would be, if he could just forget what it was like to fight for the reputedly decadent but really quite civilised Yhelteth Empire, what it was like to bring down a dragon single-handed in the war against the Scaled Folk --
and end up an imperial citizen for his trouble. Egar the Dragonbane came back home to his people in triumph. Years later, though, the triumph is wearing a little thin; he can't settle. But out on the steppe, something very unpleasant is coming to call, and if he wants to survive, he's going to have to run long before he can fight." --
