Lincoln Maxwell never wanted to be a hero. Betrayed and beaten, he was content to disappear into a new world where no one knew his name. But, Eternity’s heroes are not chosen lightly; they are forged on the battlefield. When faced with the Black Sorcerer’s army, Lincoln is forced into the conflict once again. With Idalore little more than a smoking ruin, he must decide if he will let it suffocate under its crimes, or if he will lead the remnants of hope into the waiting inferno. Following the events of Eternity’s Reach, the Legal Proofreader who threw away life and love will have one last chance to redeem himself. But, with time running out on his second life, he must find the strength to stand. He must find the will to go back and face the demons that brought him here. And, with the Sword of Eternity’s secrets laid bare, he must redeem the irredeemable.
