"A classic heroic saga, dealing with the bedrock issues of good and evil and identity. These are classic themes because they matter, and Brown makes them matter both to his young protagonist and the reader. It promises to continue for quite a distance, and I hope it does." – Kage Baker, author of The House of Stag

"John Brown adds his voice to epic fantasy with a world I can see and smell and taste and believe in... and characters I can cheer for, travel with, and want to see again." – Ken Scholes, author of Lamentation

Young Talen lives in a world where the days of a person’s life can be harvested, bought, and stolen. Only the great Divines, who rule every land, and the human soul-eaters, dark ones who steal from man and beast, know the secrets of this power. Now, in Talen's land, the Divine has gone missing, and soul-eaters are loose among the people.

The Clans muster a massive hunt, and Talen finds himself a target. Although his struggle is against both soul-eaters and their hunters, Talen actually has larger problems. A being of awesome power has arisen, a being whose diet consists of the days of men. Her Mothers once ranched human subjects like cattle. She has emerged to take back what is rightfully hers.

Trapped in a web of lies and ancient secrets, Talen must struggle to identify his true enemy before she finds the one whom she will transform... into the very lord of the human harvest.
