Chronicles of the Varian Empire – The Enlightened Emperor
Half-blood means “different”. Good or evil depends on the point of view.
The Genn were banished from the Varian Empire almost sixty years ago, their last town destroyed twenty-five years ago. Half-bloods have a hard time fitting in, especially if they have no idea of what they have lost.
So they find the most unlikely of friends – a warrior woman, a scholar, a Sila, a wannabe wizard and maybe even the Emperor himself.

L’eredità di Saif, suo figlio Hakeem, lo vendicherà e probabilmente curerà il cuore spezzato di Kilig.
