Orbit released today the covert art for the upcoming follow-up to Anna Smith Spark's great debut, The Court of Broken Knives. The second book in the Empires of Dust series, The Tower of Living and Dying will be released next year.
Marith has been a sellsword, a prince, a murderer, a demon, and dead. But something keeps bringing him back to life, and now there is nothing stopping him from taking back the throne that is rightfully his.
Thalia, the former high priestess, remains Marith’s only tenuous grasp to whatever goodness he has left. His left hand and his last source of light, Thalia still believes that the power that lies within him can be used for better ends. But as more forces gather beneath Marith’s banner, she can feel her influence slipping.
