Summary: Sylves Tevenra is a powerful mage, said to have been born with the ability to subdue humanity's mortal enemies once and for all. Esares is the demon who was sent to kill him and has been paying the price ever since. And then there is Anereth Laverien, who Esares knows is unkind and treacherous, but who is the only person his master would trust with his treasured slave.
Esares holds the key to his master's destruction, but he will have to decide whether using it would bring him and his people closer to freedom, or merely turn him into another dangerous man's pawn.
