Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Price of Valor, The Shadow Throne, and The Thousand Names comes a new novella set in the world of the Shadow Campaigns - "a world of dust and bayonets and muskets...and magic.

The wagons travel north across the mountains, carrying cargo of great value: Hamveltai glass and porcelain, Deslandai jewelry in heavy iron strongboxes, fine cloth from the cities of the Old Coast. And Abraham.

Bound and tied, guarded day and night, Abraham has been stolen from his village, from the arms of the man he loved. He is being sent to the fortress-city of Elysium to serve a dark and ancient order, the Priests of the Black. They have discovered the secret he kept all his life: that inside him dwells a demon which allows him to heal...and to kill. But Abraham is not alone. A young woman named Alex, similarly possessed, rides with him. And as a bond grows between them, they begin to wonder if they can turn the demons that have damned them into their salvation.

purposefully short

is a quick listen and that shines through in the writing style which lacks Wexler's normal flare. otherwise this short book does give a glimpse into another point of view of the world that's the stage for the other books. I look forward to seeing one or more of these characters show up in book 3.
