Duff Roman has managed the unthinkable—saving the orphanage where he grew up. But his trials are far from over.
The second book in the Relic trilogy pits Duff against his enemy Ravenne once more, but the very ground on which they battle is becoming increasingly unstable, and the time particles, Relics, and Seers that fuel the economy are disappearing.
As Duff works to save his world, his efforts are complicated by the arrival of Willow, a Seer who Ravenne believes took her daughter the day she died—and in whom Duff has more than a passing interest.
Duff and Z-Crew team up with a long-hidden group of scientists working to save them all, while Ravenne continues her endless efforts to discover what really happened to her daughter.
Duff's enemies band together and he is forced to decide where his loyalties lie. One wrong move and everything he loves will disintegrate.
This is not a stand-alone story. It is best enjoyed after Company Assassin, the first in the trilogy.
