Overview

All the powers of the world are seeking for an heir to the Crimson Throne, an heir to inherit all the powers of the long dead High King. Many have been found; none have lived. The Yhar'sharem seek a restoration; the Unbound Enchanters control kingdoms surrounding the capital city, where lies the Crimson Throne, and kill any of the royal blood that fall into their hands.

Yissa is the concubine of Duke Castal and childhood sweetheart of Clavis, a mercenary enhanced with powerful magic designed to keep him alive no matter what. When Ormindas, a sorcerer and priest under Castal's protection, creates a functional gate through which troops can be rapidly moved, the Unbound Enchanter known as the Eyeless King perceives a threat and moves against Castal.

Regret Yhar'sharem senses an heir in the region of the first battle, but loses him again in chaos of the following rout.

Further from the field of battle, Hebron feels he can no longer wait for his master's return and sets off on a voyage of self-discovery. He can wield an ancient power but insists he is neither prophet nor angel; though cannot say what he truly is, because he does not himself know.

Abbethia, the greatest general of her age, is content with her retirement from the battlefield, but old habits are hard to break.

Grylantha stands in every camp and has a talent for mayhem - but no one knows his secret heart.

When the High King was slain his bloodline numbered in the hundreds. Ninety years later, there remains only one. One last chance for a restoration, a restoration that many fear and few desire. Unknown to himself, the last heir is caught in a Prison of Power that he quite simply cannot escape.

Meet the Author

In between bouts of writing, Chris Northern does other things. He says he has no hobbies of his own, but is more than happy to go do things that other people enjoy. Exploring caves, wondering around castles and hiking are just a few examples. Swimming is pretty much out, though. No gills, no swimming. Boats are okay, just so long as they work. He does not get seasick. Or airsick.

Chris Northern lives wherever he happens to be and will move at the drop of a hat. Any hat. To anywhere. Though if it is cold he will likely not stay long. Just long enough to drive a 4X4 over a glacier, maybe.

He is often to be found eying the horizon; shortly thereafter, he is often found to be gone.
