Shadows Over Kaighal—book 3 in Pacts Arcane and Otherwise is now available in all major online stores, and you can also pick up the print version from Amazon. If you enjoyed Kamira and Veelk’s adventures in By the Pact and Scars of Sonte, I hope you will enjoy this book as well! If you’re new to the series, pick up book 1 instead or read a sample chapter.
When one’s plan to save the world includes setting a powerful demon free, one might want to consider what happens afterwards. Kamira was hoping she could just go about her life again, and that was a mistake.
To finally have a chance at freeing Veranesh, Kamira had made some risky decisions, surrendering herself to the mercy of the archmages and trusting that her companions, Veelk and Koshmarnyk, would carry out other essential parts of their plan.
In her wildest dreams she hadn’t expected that her actions would leave her with more trouble than less. Now she has a whole city on her shoulders, two demons around—one shrewder than the other, and plenty of enemies to pick from. Even with the demon invasion imminent, Gildya is fussing about Koshmarnyk’s presence in the city, the kingdom of Tivarashan is making its moves to conquer Kaighal, and Kamira would love to toss it all out for a lone journey to find out whether Veelk is still alive. But first, she will need to clean up her mess, one way or another.
The archmage is dead! Long live the archmage…! That is, if she can survive assassins, politics, and the lack of Veelk’s biting humor.
