Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Jeriah’s brother, Tobin, is in terrible danger.
He’s willingly crossed over to the Otherworld with a hedgewitch named Makenna and her legion of goblins. What Tobin doesn’t know is that the Otherworld is a perilous dimension that will leech the magic from those who have it—and the life from those who don’t. Searching for the key to rescue Tobin, Jeriah is thrust into a tangled web of political intrigue as he uncovers a dangerous secret that could change the fate of an entire kingdom. In order to save both his brother and the kingdom, Jeriah must get help from the very beings he’s been taught to hate—the mischievous goblins. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking for Tobin. . . .

But it hadn’t yet. A few raw, dirty rocks had spilled into the streambed from the hillside’s edge, but the rest of its grassy soil looked undisturbed.

He did succeed in bribing the guard to deliver a pillow and a warm blanket to her cell…but only after the man had searched them and removed the brief note Jeriah had tucked under the pillowcase. Finally Jeriah sent Daroo, who swore he could sneak the note into Senna’s cell without being caught. He was sitting up in his

And if he was right…” Koryn’s personal tragedy was enough to influence anyone’s judgment; but if she’d told the truth, if the barbarians couldn’t be stopped, then he had to do something about it. The harm you did in this world mattered. Master Lazur had taught Jeriah that. If bringing down the priest put a stop to the relocation, and the
