When Alec of Kerry is imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit,  he’s certain his life is over.  And he certainly never expected his cellmate, Seregil. Spy, rogue, thief, noble – Seregil is all of these and none of them predictable. When he offers to take Alec as his apprentice, things are never the same for either of them.  Alec now travels roads he didn’t know existed, toward a war he never knew was brewing. Soon they are both embroiled in a sinister plot that runs very deep indeed and which may cost them far more than their lives if they fail.  But fortune is unpredictable and there just may be luck in the shadows.
