Author Thomas W. Everson

When he learns that power imbued artifacts could be the answer, Rain seeks to honor his vow of breaking the house free of the time vortex. He wants to provide everyone stability, but he needs it more than they do. There's great potential within the artifacts, but also terrible effects when  one of them is discovered to be his late brother's dagger.

Defined as a champion of the people by his drive for justice, he wants to forget how deep and dark his past goes. It seems all but impossible when a foe powerful enough to command an entire city comes against Rain, and Tiberius urges him to be merciless. Two souls collide and he embraces who he really is. Who he's always been.
