QSFer Arshad Ahsanuddin has a new gay fantasy book out, book two in the Secret Histories series: “The Second Age Part One: Lord Of Silence – Arshad Ahsanuddin.”
The bargain between Laras and the creature known as Chaos comes to bloody fruition, as their corrupted scions spread across the world, turning the night into a battlefield. Finally, Laras turns his attention to the next step in his revenge against House Tanek: to bring Rian into his dark fold. Rian, however, still has a few cards left to play, forging an uneasy alliance with Narissa, leader of the Magery’s secret police.
Mikal has his own problems, mourning the death of his brother, Jasra, cut down in battle against Laras’s forces. Whether Jasra stays dead, or rises to join the enemy, Mikal knows that the chance to reconcile with his estranged brother is lost forever. In the meantime, he must make his own foray into enemy territory, accompanying Rian back to the Tanek heir’s home in the heart of the Imperium.
The battle lines are drawn, the pieces set upon on the board for the inevitable confrontation between Order and Chaos. But not even the Great Powers can force the game to conform entirely to their will, and free will may yet turn the conflict on its head, as an unexpected ally takes the field.
