‘The Malice was entertaining and riveting, with almost never a dull moment. …Do yourself a favour, buy this book. And the first one, too, if you don’t already own it. You will regret nothing.’ Geeks of Doom
In the south, the Breach stirs.
Gamma’s sword, the Malice, wakes, calling to be taken to battle once more.
But the Vagrant has found a home now, made a life and so he turns his back, ignoring its call.
The sword cries out, frustrated, until another answers.
Her name is Vesper.
