A promise imprisoned him.

Betrayal will set him free.

Wandering mercenary Eutau Vidal promised his dying sister that he would care for her child—an infant with dark, dangerous powers. Will Eutau find meaning in the promise he made amid the ashes of war, or will he turn his back on the innocent?

No one is innocent.

No one is safe.

The Purging is over, the Deadbringers are gone, Eutau and Kira have survived. But for how much longer? Told from multiple POVs, The Deadbringer is a story of damaged heroes, imperfect villains, and of a Land scarred by its people's choices.
