Liam spent his life in his brother Ryder’s shadow. He is second-in-command in the rebellion Ryder leads against Lord Purdun. He’s in love with the beautiful woman his brother married. He’s followed his brother’s lead in everything—until a raid on Lord Purdun goes awry, his brother is killed, and he is offered a place amongst Lord Purdun’s guards. A chance to redeem himself and step beyond his brother’s shadow, if he dares.
Ryder has a hard but enviable and honorable life. Until the day the trap he set for Lord Purdun backfires. He sacrifices himself to save his brother, Liam—but Lord Purdun doesn’t kill him. He throws him in a dungeon and sells him into slavery, where the only tools he has with which to escape are the chain of his bondage. Vowing to return to defeat Lord Purdun and save his brother from the dire straits he surely found himself in, he plots his revenge.
In the FORGOTTEN REALMS, the line between love and hate is razor thin. Two brothers who once seemed indivisible, invincible so long as they were together, are torn asunder. Fortunes are reversed, passions blossom, and loyalties divide. When next these brothers, who were once so close, meet, they will be forced to chose between the men they were together, and the men they have become—and the kingdom of Erlkazar will be changed forever.
