Abandoned as a boy, raised by the Shedaim – the brotherhood of assassins sworn to keep peace in the world by murder and manipulation – Neythan longs for nothing more than to stand with the Brotherhood’s best. Yet, on the night he and his fellow apprentices are dispatched into the world to kill their first marks, Neythan’s world is turned upside down. Framed for the murder of his closest friend, Neythan must pursue his betrayer – and in doing so learn the dark secrets at the heart of not just the Brotherhood, but the world itself.
