To flee from her past,
Winter Ihernglass masqueraded as a man and enlisted as a ranker in the
Vordanai Colonials, hoping only to avoid notice. But when chance sees
her promoted to command, she must win the hearts of her men and lead
them into battle against impossible odds.
The fates of both
these soldiers and all the men they lead depend on the newly arrived
Colonel Janus bet Vhalnich, who has been sent by the ailing king to
restore order. His military genius seems to know no bounds, and under
his command, Marcus and Winter can feel the tide turning. But their
allegiance will be tested as they begin to suspect that the enigmatic
Janus’s ambitions extend beyond the battlefield and into the realm of
the supernatural—a realm with the power to ignite a meteoric rise,
reshape the known world, and change the lives of everyone in its path.
