For chronology fans, this story takes place some one hundred and twenty-five years before the events in Blood Song

Book description:

When the mighty and cruel must be brought low, it’s the killers and the schemers who emerge from the shadows. As plans twist and change, and our protagonists are foiled and beaten, one thing remains true: no matter the cost, the king must fall.
