A scrappy young off-worlder fights for his life—and to find his missing family—in the second book of this fantasy series from the author of Ascendant.
Luke Bennet isn’t fighting alone anymore. The beautiful dwifkin Zea is stalwart by his side, and it’s a good thing too. As if the battle-prone squirrel folk and otter-kin weren’t enough, he’s got mercenaries, bands of raiders, and a bloodthirsty inquisitor on his tail. All he wants is to get back his missing family. Can’t a guy catch a break?
To that end, Luke is honing his skills by battling all the beasts that get between him and completion of his mission. Still, he and Zea are both banking on a bloodline purification ritual to help them get to the God Machine. And they’re trying not to think too hard about what will happen to them when Luke goes back to his home world. That is, if he survives that long . . .
Even as he levels up again and again, enemies keep coming out of the woodwork. The church sees all off-worlders as apostates, but it seems to have a particular loathing for Luke. Why does the Pantheon want him dead? Why does everyone appear to want him dead?
