Caleb Tala is an assassin, a very good one. His cousin, ruler of the Temanin Empire, has sent him north to oversee the invasion of the northern lands and the attack on the White City. With a blinding flash of intense light the war is over. In the middle of this blazing, glorious light, Caleb encounters the Word. Caleb’s time of reckoning has come for all the lives he has snuffed out in his young career. Can there be forgiveness for an assassin, a hired killer? The Word not only forgives Caleb, but gives him a second chance to change his life, because he is needed.
The Temanin’s war maybe over, but the war for the Lands has just begun as the Shadonae tighten their grip around Thyra and the surrounding kingdoms. Rowen Mar sets out in what is thought to be a journey to face the new enemies of the land, but turns out to be a torturous voyage of deceit and blood lust by those she has vowed to save.
Ms. Busse second book in the Follower of the Word series is a much darker, nail-biting novel that is hard to put down. The characters and the turmoil they encounter is so vivid that it will keep the reader spellbound for a long time. In this second book, I’ve grown to really love these characters. There are twist and turns that will keep the reader tied to the pages. Another great installment that will not disappoint those looking for romance, adventure and intrigue. — Steven Macon, editor
