Adrift in the void, Henrik’s rescue is only a prelude to slavery.
But his new life on Tyria is not at all what he expected. When the illustrious House of Quoll purchases him, Henrik finds himself living in the home of his old enemy, Prefect Brasca Quoll. Desperate to hide the truth of his last days on Heimir, Henrik dives into the murderous game of Tyrianite politics. Devastated by the catastrophe on the Norn homeworld, the Federation teeters on the brink of civil war.
While the Shining Ones maneuver their champions for the final confrontation, Henrik’s fevered visions unveil the scope of Moriigo’s nightmarish rebellion.
Aboard a stolen voidcraft, Brohr and Lyssa hurtle into the depths of the starry abyss, on a desperate exodus in search of safe haven. But the outer reaches of the system are full of strange worlds, haunted ruins, and bizarre cults.
As anarchy grips the streets of Tyria, Henrik vows to reveal the true peril facing the Federation: Moriigo’s return! While rival electors, assassins, and federal inquisitors plot the downfall of House Quoll, Henrik must bind himself to the future of his onetime enemies, lest the horrors of his prophetic visions come to pass!
The Weeping Sigil by Jordan Loyal Short
(The Dreadbound Ode #2)
I felt like I was plunged into another realm, one of fantasy, but also something more. THE WEEPING SIGIL by Jordan Loyal Short is full of tension, political machinations and manipulations as Henrik’s newfound slavery to his old enemy, Brasca Quoll becomes a powerful opportunity. Henrik is determined to unveil the true monster hiding in the shadows of war as his prophetic visions hint at the possible horrors of the future.
Jordan Loyal Short has created a living and breathing world where hatred and jealousies abound, loyalties are pushed to the limit and deceit flows freely. Henrik is a bold character, enslaved, yet quick-witted enough to manipulate his master, while steering him into the trap he has set while feeding his large ego.
Detailed descriptions make on almost see and smell all that is around just as easily as learning to distrust so many entitled puppets. Adult, epic and dark fantasy that has continued the Dreadbound Ode series. Highly recommended reading to savor!
I received a complimentary ARC edition from Jordan Loyal Short! This is my honest and voluntary review.
