This Part 1 of the 2nd book (Part 4 overall) in the Amüli Chronicles: Soulbound series of epic fantasies is ideal for readers 16 and older.
Two decades ago, the amüli people’s last great monarch became Soulless, and a revolt against the crown forged the kingdom into a republic. But the young Amüli Republic is vulnerable to collapse, especially when faced with the Unsouled plague and the escape of Clae, the amüli half-breed accused of causing so much death.
Marik failed to capture Clae for the Amüli Republic’s oligarchy, and amülicitizens are furious. Some cities have offered half-breeds refuge while others hunt them down. Tension between various cities and high lords is rising, and it seems nothing can stop theRepublic from tearing itself apart.
The former amüli king Maracos Aneys has risen from his Soulless slumber thanks to his daughter Jartia. Her elder half-sister Marae discovers the king has returned, and she will do anything to keep him from the throne—even if it means sacrificing Marik, her own son, to appease the masses. With Maracos vying for power and the Amüli Republic on the verge of dissolving, Marik’s only hope for redemption is to find Clae and bring back his head.
