Blurb: War came to the Dreamlands when Kyushu was invaded by the Egyptians and Inuzaka Keno’s old nemesis, the Trust. As the lords of Nippon maneuver on and off the field to recover their lands, the peaceful life Keno enjoyed with his lover, Samojirou Aboshi, comes to a violent end. Loyalty to their rulers and the need to drive the enemies from Kyushu tears them apart and forces them to question everything they thought they believed.
Trust refugee Mason Kairns, an ally of Keno and Aboshi’s liege lord, struggles to carve a place in a society as hostile as the Northlands he fled. Amidst the chaos and political scheming, the protection of the Hakkenshi may be all that stands between them and disaster.
With the fight for Kyushu intensifying, Keno reminds Aboshi more and more of his ancestor: a cursed warrior who spent his life covered in blood.
Though Keno has vowed to never take a life, desperation pushes him closer to the madness that devoured his predecessor and giving in could cost him everything—including Aboshi and the love they share.

Review: This is the third book in the Dreamlands series.
This book is fraught with war, mistrust and two people who are torn apart as they struggle for the balance that is lost when invading forces threaten to destroy their world. It broke my heart that Kenyo and Aboshi went through what they did as I so enjoyed them as a couple in the other books.
There are many characters that reappear in this story from the other books as well as new ones. I haven’t read many stories where there is a wide range of characters that interact throughout a book. But it definitely works in this series.
I loved all the interactions, details and descriptions throughout. I felt sorry for those caught in the crosshairs and was hoping no one was seriously injured the further I read. I was rooting for Kenyo and Aboshi to find their way to each other again as the story unfolded.
An epic fantasy that draws you in and keeps you reading until the very end. I would recommend reading the first book and continuing from their as each book continues where the last left off in a way.
