The gripping second book of this must-read series by breakout author Evan Winter continues to raise the bar for epic fantasy fans, doing for the genre what Black Panther did for superhero films
'CAPTIVATING EPIC FANTASY FROM A MAJOR NEW TALENT' Anthony Ryan, on The Rage of Dragons
Desperate to delay an impending attack by the indigenous people of Xidda, Tau and his queen craft a dangerous plan. If Tau succeeds, the queen will have the time she needs to assemble her forces and launch an all-out assault on her own capital city, where her city is being propped up as the 'true' Queen of the Omehi.
If the city can be taken, if Tsiora can reclaim her throne and reunite her people, then the Omehi might have a chance to survive the coming onslaught.

Born in England to South American parents, Evan Winter was raised in Africa near the historical territory of his Xhosa ancestors.

So, before he ran out of time, he started writing them.
