Overview
WAR AND MADNESS CAST SHADOWS OVER THE LANDS DRAGONS ONCE RULED.
Geder Palliako's star is rising. He is a hero of Antea, protector to the crown prince, and darling of the court. But storms from his past are gathering, and with them, a war that will change everything.
Cithrin bel Sarcour founded a powerful bank on stolen wealth, forged papers, and ready blades. Now every move she makes is observed, recorded, and controlled. Unless Cithrin can free herself from her gilded cage, the life she made will be for naught; war may provide just the opportunity she needs.
An apostate priest sees the hidden hand behind all: a long-buried secret of the dragon empire threatens everything humanity has built. An age of madness and death approaches, with only a few doomed heroes to stand in its way.

When the king of Antea dies, loyal and idealistic Geder Palliako is appointed regent for the young prince. But Geder is an unrepentant genocidaire and an unquestioning follower of the Spider Goddess of Truth, and his bad judgment threatens to destabilize the region. His opponents attempt a coup but are doomed by their adherence to the feudal social order, which blinds them to both the danger of the Spider priests and potential allies among the lower classes. It’s left to the people beneath their notice to set things right. Cithrin bel Sarcour and her colleagues at the Medean Bank plot Geder’s downfall, and bank mercenary Marcus Wester and former priest Master Kit set out to kill a goddess. Abraham builds on The Dragon’s Path to create and sustain a rich, satisfyingly complex epic fantasy. Agents: Shawna McCarthy, the McCarthy Agency, and Danny Baror, Baror International. (May)
