Summary

Summary

Conn Iggulden is back with the spellbinding second instalment in the Empire of Salt trilogy.

The city of Shiang stands at the edge of a shattered empire. A single family keeps order with soldiers and artefacts, spies and memories, clinging to a peace that shifts and crumbles. The people of the city endure what they cannot change.

Ambitious leaders sense a chance to carve out empires of their own. Men nearer at hand speak in whispers of war and the destruction of a great city to the west - Darien.

And on the great road between Shiang and Darien, bands of mercenaries and deserters restlessly wait for the time to launch their attack on the empire's land.
