    Author's Note: The following story takes place in the same world as my novel Blood Song, the first volume in the Raven's Shadow trilogy. I wrote it because I wanted to more fully explore characters who appear in Blood Song and the sequels Tower Lord and Queen of Fire. Readers familiar with my work are sure to recognize a certain pale-eyed, raspy-voiced Sword Master of the Sixth Order, and those curious as to the origins of the Tower Lord of the Southern Shore will find answers here.

    Alex McLeod paid dearly during the war for independence from Earth. It left the detective disfigured, jaded and alone. In the aftermath of victory, Alex seethes as criminal factions and cold-blooded killers clash over control of the newly-liberated confederation. In his crusade for justice in the free states, he's willing to break more than a few rules along the way...

    The only home Alex knows is the slums of Slab, an orbiting city teeming with lowlifes, back-stabbers and gene-spliced monstrosities. From the grimy streets of his city to the lawless Asteroid Belt, Alex goes toe-to-toe with a sharp-clawed vigilante, a mythical serial killer, and a gorgeous vampire with an ominous message. His quest won't end until his homeland earns the freedom it was promised…

    But even Alex may not be able to stop the impending Reckoning and a voyage to the one place he swore he'd never return: Earth...

    Vaelin Al Sorna, héros légendaire du Royaume Unifié, accomplit son dernier voyage. Sur le navire qui l'emmène vers sa condamnation, il raconte à un jeune chroniqueur impérial les événements qui l’ont conduit à cette tragique conclusion. Vaelin aurait dû succéder à son père, le célèbre Seigneur de Guerre, mais il était promis à un autre destin. Confronté dès l'enfance au quotidien rude d'un combattant de la Foi, il n'aura désormais pour seule famille que l'Ordre qui l'a recueilli dans ses rangs. C'est là, entre les maîtres sans pitié et les épreuves initiatiques mortelles, qu'il se liera à vie à ses frères d'armes, et à celle qu'il n'a pas le droit d'approcher.
