Shadow of a Mage
Book 2 of The Blood Mage Chronicles
Do not use energy from the living. Do not reanimate the dead.
Warnings that had been drilled into Ash. Unbreakable laws that no one ignored.
The Faceless Monks changed that.
If they could be so brazen as to do it, then so could he.
The shattering of long held beliefs has taken Ash outside of the law. His blatant disregard of the rules could ruin whatever chance he has of getting revenge on the Faceless Monks, and rescuing his beloved sister.
Ash understands that there are consequences for his actions. Consequences he intends to ignore to get back what is most important to him…whatever the cost.
