A bonus short story featuring Silhara and Martise from Master of Crows.
In The Light Within, Silhara of Neith, now known as “the god-smiter,” travels as the guest of honor to the winter festival of his father’s people.
The crow mage who destroyed one god must ignite sacred fires in honor of another. Yet the winter festival only reminds Silhara that the brightest light within him isn’t the fire of a deity but the devotion of one woman.
A tale of hope and celebration.
Author note: This short story is approximately 3,700 words and takes place after the events in MASTER OF CROWS.
