An epic tale of magic, revenge and power begins. Jaran Saerk is an exile from the North, driven out of his homeland by a sorceress who killed his father. He came of age while serving as a warrior in the armies of the Imperial Shen, but he’s never forgotten his vow to avenge his family and take back what is rightfully his. Recently captured and made a slave, Savarna hides a dark secret and doesn’t plan on staying in chains for long. She wants to escape, slip inside the Golden Palace and kill the Empress of Shen. When she meets the exiled warrior from the North, she finally may have her chance. Finvar the Droll, who claims to be a retired thief, insists he can help Jaran in his quest to regain his kingdom. But whose side is this trickster really on? As mighty nations ready for war, enemies surround the trio on all sides. They must unite not simply to stay alive, but also to fulfill their quest: Kill the witch Sheega before she destroys them all. Blood Feud is the start of a new trilogy set in the world of Ansu.
