The people of Eldar are stepping up their efforts to rid their beloved city state of dark mages, and they are bringing the fight into the hills. When calamity strikes, Audrey and Callan can no longer deal with the situation on their own. Forced to admit that they need help, they journey to Malgrave to find the one person who might be able to provide it.
But the city of Malgrave is not for the faint of heart. A lethal dark mage rules half of the city with an iron fist, and he has no reason to help anyone with their problems. On the contrary, he enjoys wielding his power selfishly from atop his throne of metal. To make matters worse, he also has a history with Callan that ended badly.
In order to win the war against Eldar, Callan and Audrey need to persuade him to help. But the deck is stacked against them from the very beginning. Can they navigate the sinful streets of Malgrave together and secure the assistance they need without getting swept away by Callan’s blood-soaked past?
While Audrey and Callan were busy trying to persuade the King of Metal to help them, Chancellor Quill and the rest of his parliament were already making their moves. Faced with overwhelming odds, the dark mages will have to use every trick and every scheme that they can conjure in order to stand a chance.
However, one of the good things about being a dark mage is that there are no limitations. No rules. And no morals. To win this war, Callan and Audrey and the rest of their allies plan to fight dirty. Nothing is too ruthless, too wicked, when their power and freedom are on the line. The only problem is of course that dark mages are not used to working together with others, and one mistake could doom them all.
Trust is scarce. Relationships barely formed are easily broken. And the entire might of Eldar, along with a Binder, awaits them on the other side of the battlefield. Can Audrey and Callan go up against them and walk away victorious? Or do ruthless villains like them simply not get a happily ever after?
