Strife's Bane (Hardcover) (Evie Manieri)
about this item
"Deftly portrays three clashing cultures about to be torn apart by violent rebellion....[A] fast-paced tale of honor and betrayal, hope and despair, secrets, revelations, and a whisper of divine magic."—Sharon Shinn, author of Troubled Waters on Blood’s Pride Strife’s Bane pushes a grand cast of characters to the brink of ruin as the conclusion to Evie Manieri's Shattered Kingdom series. With Manieri’s unique blend of magic, blood, and dramatic tension, the stakes have never been so high.
She was tainted.
Once known as the Mongrel, Lahlil only had one purpose: to reap blood and carnage for those who paid the right price. And though the ravages of past wars haunted her every waking moment, when the Shadari called upon Lahlil to lead the rebellion against Norlanders—telepathic and bloodthirsty invaders who conquered the Shadari's lands and enslaved their people to the mines—she delivered.
Then she ran.
Now, Lahlil must return to Shadar to save the person she loves the most and rebuild. What she finds first is a kingdom that has devolved to political discord and an old enemy’s ships sailing just beyond the horizon.
"[Manieri's] characters are passionate and memorable...Fans of Sharon Shinn, Elspeth Cooper, and Gail Z. Martin should enjoy Manieri's approach to culture and drama.” —Library Journal (starred review)
