Sander Jorve thought that infiltrating the brutal Guard of Lantern City would help his family and his cause. He was wrong.
After a chance run-in with the Emperor of the city, Killian Grey, Sander finds himself promoted to the Grey Guard, working directly under Killian in the heights of Grey Towers. The luxury is unparalleled, but can Killian be trusted? Can Sander trust himself? Nowhere in Lantern City is safe…and the imperial court may just be the most dangerous place of all.
Sander left his family behind to try to make a difference within the Guard, cruel overseers of the poor, working class. While Sander continues to move up in the ranks, his loyalties still remain with those he left behind. Until he sees something shocking within a resistance group.
The second installment in this engaging, steampunk series is, once again, full of suspense, intrigue, and drama. The artwork is great – fitting the darker mood of the story. I look forward to future installments and, hopefully, learning more about the history of this city and how it became this dystopic society. The creators have developed a fascinating, steampunk world that I can’t get enough of reading.
