The Hunter - Peryton, Part Two
“When you hear twittering,” Akhaïdes Outlaw says, “think of birds.”
He holds a precarious place in Nafpaktos. He is a pariah, but his work is crucial to the Herakleids’ success. Though he craves anonymity and escape, he can’t abandon the brother who loathes him, nor the king who cannot control him yet won’t let him go.
Then hunters are taken by their prey, a woman’s reckless passion could end a dynasty, and only the outlaw can piece together the peril no one else sees. He might save those he loves, but at a terrible cost. And the king has a brutal solution of his own.
