Juliet Marillier continues the epic fantasy begun with The Dark Mirror, which Interzone called "A fascinating evocation of life in Pictish England and an emotional roller coaster of a story," with The Well of Shades: Book Three of The Bridei Chronicles.
King Bridei is a man with a mission. His wish to unite his kingdom seems almost within his grasp but there are forces working to undo his dream. He sends Faolan, his most trusted advisor (who is also a master assassin and spymaster) out into the world to ferret out the truth of who is friend and who is foe.

And offer him the chance of redemption.
