Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Behind a wall in a hidden chamber lies a dark secret: The Blood Gate. Legend hints at its awesome power—and its dreadful costs. Since ancient times, the mysterious portal has been kept sealed and hidden. Only the great Xarhux himself had ever dared to enter…
And he emerged with the strength of a god.
And the mind of a madman.
Now, a young descendant of the Conqueror, the exiled Prince Hurrus, must discover the Blood Gate’s terrible secret if he is ever to reclaim the throne of his father.
His people fight and die for his return. Bands of rebels wage a hopeless war against vast supernatural forces. Outmatched and increasingly desperate, a single dream keeps them alive—the dream of the return of their king. The dream of Hurrus.
But he must first face what few have survived—hired blades of the famed Prathian Guard…
Unforgettable characters, non-stop action, romance, and intrigue…
Military fantasy for fans of historical fiction. Based loosely on the era of Alexander’s Successors. From the author of The War God’s Men.
