Saker appears to be a simple priest, but in truth he's a spy for the head of his faith. Wounded in the line of duty by a Lascar sailor's blade, the weapon seems to follow him home. Unable to discard it, nor the sense of responsibility it brings, Saker can only follow its lead. The dagger puts Saker on a journey to distant shores, on a path that will reveal terrible secrets about the empire, about the people he serves, and destroy the life he knows. The Lascar's dagger demands a price, and that price will be paid in blood.

I just discovered this obscure series and loved it. The fantasy world consists of two hemispheres; one is European in culture, the other Southeast Asian. Three people's lives converge: Saker, a young cleric and spy; Sorrel, a young matron who has accidentally killed her husband after finding out that he murdered her deaf daughter; and Ardhi, far from his native land in the Summer Seas, searching for plumes of great power stolen from his Raja. The first book starts slowly, but once I got going I could hardly put it down.
