Synopsis

BOOK THREE: SHADOWS OF THE APT

As the forces of the Empire prepare for their next great offensive, Stenwold and his followers have only a short time in which to seek allies in an attempt to halt the imperial advance. And if they fail, then the hated black and gold flag of the Empire will be flying over every city in the Lowlands before the year's end.

But there is hope. A seer, Achaeos, has tracked down a powerful ancient artefact, the Shadow Box should he recover it the tide of the war could be turned . . .

But should the Shadow Box fall into the hands of the power-mad Emperor, then nothing will save the world from his relentless ambition.
