The Dog in the Dark Author - Barb and J. C. Hendee Series - The Noble Dead #3 book #2 Genre - Fantasy Pages - 464 Release Date - December 31st 2012
Barely escaping the city of Calm Seatt — and the elven assassins hunting them — Magiere, Leesil, and the elven dog Chap sail south in their quest to find the powerful orb of Air before their enemies do. But they are not alone, much to their frustration.
The aging elven assassin, Brot’an, has forced himself on them by offering his protection for Magiere from enemies among his own caste. Chap doesn’t believe this ruse and seeks to uncover the assassin’s true agenda — as well as the cause of the secret civil war that has erupted into the open among Brot'an's people.
Meanwhile Magiere is struggling with her own dark nature, using Leesil’s love as an anchor to keep her grounded. For the personal price she paid to procure the orb of Fire up in the northern “Wastes” was more than she thought — and more than she wants to reveal to anyone else.
But that is exactly what the cunning Brot’an wants to know. And he is willing to do whatever it takes — even if he must reveal his own dreaded secrets that may cost the entire party their lives.
