**From the author of Iron Axe comes the second Book of Blood and Iron
Ages ago, those who had the ability to change their shape lost it, leading to endless bloody battles for supremacy between the racesuntil one reluctant hero stepped forth to restore peace to the world.**
Even though Danr the half troll ended centuries of fighting, he still is not living the quiet life he longs for. Rumors have arisen that certain people are once again wielding the power of the shape. If Danr could learn to use it, he could become fully human and spend his life with his beloved, Aisa. But he is not the only one who craves the gift of changing form.
Slavers have taken Danr's friends captive, demanding the power of the shape as ransom. To obtain it, Danr must cross paths with the Fates, Death, and a giant wyrm that lives at the bottom of the oceanbefore other, more dangerous parties uncover the secrets of shape changing.
