Author’s note: this novella tells the story of Asphodel after Trea leaves, bridging the time between Balance Broken and the upcoming Destiny Risen.
Aitan dreams of power.
His family dreams of revenge.
He has followed First Leader Keirna for years, careful to appear loyal even when it cost him nearly everything.
When Astrea and Lexan abandon the city, the people of Asphodel realize their sacred prophecy was false. Justice and Balance are gone, and Keirna is now free to create her own destiny. She forces Asphodel to rise early, even while Saloman rants that the prophecy is true and must be obeyed.
Aitan must work to balance his desires with Asphodel’s needs, and his ties to Keirna with his task of revolution.
Unfortunately, Aitan has never been good with balance, and everything he’s worked for might soon topple from the scales, becoming buried forever.
Author’s Note: this book chronicles Aitan’s time in Asphodel. It’s best read after Balance Broken.
