Prince Lowan, the educated and debonair second son of the King of Thrace, has arrived to make peace with his father’s enemies. But the price Andal requires for peace is high–too high–and Lowan knows there are many ways to influence a nation at war.

As of 8:30 EST, Assassin hasn’t gone free yet due to server latency at Amazon. I’ve asked them to look into it and push it to free manually, but of course that might be me whistling in the wind. I’ll update here when it goes free.
