“We are those who personal the evening. we're the ones with blood on our arms. we're the reapers, the demons, the darkish shadows wielding metal. we won't be denied our vengeance.”

----

Haern is the King's Watcher, protector opposed to thieves and nobles who could fill the evening with blood. but hundreds of thousands of miles away, an murderer often called the Wraith has all started slaughtering these in strength, and leaving the emblem of the Watcher in mockery. while Haern travels south to confront his copycat killer, he unearths a urban governed by way of the corrupt, the grasping, and the damaging. Rioters fill the streets, and the specter of battle with the mysterious elves hangs over all. to forestall it, Haern needs to confront the lethal Wraith, and the fellow he may perhaps become.
