|Book Cover: “Gair is mourning his past. . .
. . . But there is no time to dwell on his grief or hunger for revenge. Pursuing an artefact from the Founding Wars, he travels deep into the hostile southern deserts. As religious tensions erupt into bloody violence around him, he must make an impossible choice: save innocent lives or sacrifice them in the hope that thousands more can be saved later.
And all the while, his grip on his powers is failing.
He is not alone in noticing the growing unrest and sensing something darker looming behind it. Beyond the mountains, in the bitterly cold north, Teia has seen the signs as well after hundreds of years of peace; her people are talking of a risky invasion to reclaim their ancestral lands…
Her Speaker Claims the gods are on their side, but Teia fears that another, hidden hand is stirring up her people. Whatever the truth, all she can see in her future is blood, battle, and death. If only she could see a way to avert that fate.
Teia fears there is nothing she can do about it. Her clan is riding to war, but her secret, untrained gift of foretelling has shown her they are riding to their doom. If she cannot turn them from their course, her only hope of saving them will be to betray them to their sworn enemies.”
Elspeth Cooper opens up Trinity Rising to the wider world, introducing powerful new characters to the weave of sorcery and new, greater perils to the desperate heroes who guard the Veil between the worlds. She starts this book off with Savin in the first chapter. Then a new character Teia is introduced. So don’t be surprised that Gair starts at the fifteen chapter. This is a great book, better than the first book. ~~ CLD
