A primeval fiend is loose in the ancient metropolis of Malkandrah, intent on burning it to a wasteland. The city's leaders stand idly by and the sorcerers that once protected the people are long gone.
Maldren, a young necromancer, is the only person brave enough to stand against the creature. Instead of help from the Masters of his Guild, he is given a new apprentice. Why now, and why a girl? As they unravel the clues to defeating the fiend, they discover a secret society holding the future of the city in its grip. After betrayals and attempts on his life, Maldren has reason to suspect everyone he thought a friend, even the girl.
His last hope lies in an alliance with a depraved and murderous ghost, but how can he trust it? Its sinister past is intertwined in the lives of everyone he holds dear.
Can only evil defeat evil?
Shelfie Blog Hop

I only discovered this blog hop yesterday. I love exploring bookshelves. Plus, there are some awesome prizes. A massive thank you to the hosts: Christine Rains, Tara Tyler, Heather Gardner, CD Coffelt, M.J. Fifield, Elizabeth Seckman, Rena Rocford, and Vicki Biram. Visit one of the hosts to find out how to take part and what awesome prizes are on offer.
Here's my shelfie. As you can see, I do have a slight fondness for Star Trek.
Have I tempted you to take part in the Shelfie Blog Hop? Do you like exploring book shelves?
