Part Guardian—part Priest, Evanar Hostric is a broken mage with a dark side.
Traveling to answer a mysterious offer from the Emperor, he finds himself the enemy of one of the most powerful nobles in the land.
But after discovering the Archduke’s secret—that he is selling children to his wealthy friends to fund a rebellion—that suits Evan just fine.
Locked in a race to save those that society ignored, he is beleaguered at every step and finds himself more and more willing to do horrible things in the pursuit of right.
Evanar Hostric is the Emperor’s Conscience, but does that leave room for one of his own?
