The Second Wave
Hammer and Spear Trilogy Book 2
by David Bacque

A thousand years have passed since The Fortunate were imprisoned beneath the cold and ice of Heldig Fengsel, and their freedom is now at hand. All that stands against them, and their gluttonous subjugation of the land, are the Lion of Forson, her Hammer, and her Spear—three heroes with near-supernatural abilities. Legend says they will come forth when the time is ripe and lead the people of the One Nation into battle against the Fortunate to ensure that never again will they be relegated to The Lesser. Even with these heroes, plans will need to be drawn and alliances strengthened, if they are to have any hope of prevailing against a force with far superior numbers and a wrath that has been building for a millennium. With assistance from their comrades in arms, twin brothers Edouard and Alton—presumed by many to be the prophesized Hammer and Spear— will have to survive mortal danger around every turn as they endeavor to prepare their people, and the Lion of Forson, for a battle that threatens to end their way of life and change the face of the One Nation forever. The Second Wave is the second book of the Hammer and Spear Trilogy, following The Last Line (2021), and like its predecessor, will keep readers teetering on the edge of their seats.
