Book III of The Tide Lords. Branded and sold into slavery in Senestra, Arkady holds out little hope of being rescued. She turns to her new owner for help…but learning the truth about him may cost both their lives. Jaxyn’s plans hit a snag when he realises the one man who can challenge him for the Glabaen throne, Stellan Desean, has sought asylum in Caelum. Strangely enough, the Empress of the Five Realms, and the Tide Lords Tryan and Elyssa, seem to be on Stellan’s side…And Declan Hawkes, struggling with his transformation, abandons the Cabal, and flees to Glaeba in search of some trace of Arkady.
