The epic conclusion to the bestselling Empire of Salt series from master storyteller Conn Iggulden.
The news from the north is grim.
An army is massing under the new king of Feal. They head towards Darien - city of the Twelve families -
demanding allegiance, or war.
Tellius, Speaker to the Council, knows this divided city will never stand against such a terrible foe.
But Tellius has a plan.
He will assemble a band of heroes. Men and women who once before aided Darien in her time of need.
They will come if he calls.
The army approaches.
The trumpets of war sound.
A great city holds its breath.
And a desperate plan unfolds . . .
