Season of Suffering, Blood of Azure: Book 2
Where there is light, darkness lurks. Where there is growth, dormancy tempers. Where there is life, death anticipates. But what if death is abandoned? Life will rebel.
A villain in his own mind, Stone McLarin is labeled the hero for murdering a man. Not only is he weighted down as a hero, but he’s idolized by the local religion, and he’s the sole protector of the knowledge of the ages. Bound to hold its secrecy, the pressure of the entire realm is on his shoulders.
One other man, Carib Reign, chases after this knowledge. A shapeshifter building an army of immortals to rampage the capital where it’s hidden. His motive, to give the people of Azure the freedom they deserve. A freedom that will eventually spawn anarchy.
With much adventure along the way, Stone will lead the charge to defend the Crimson Capital against the Immortal Army. And he will uncover more secrets than he desires. Should he fail, anarchy is certain. Death for all Azure, a possibility.
Season of Suffering is part two of the Blood of Azure series—an epic fantasy with both light and dark hearts. You’ll experience many fantasy tropes, clashing swords, unique magic, fantastical beasts, and wide range of Azure’s scenic terrain.
