Command of Gelligaer, an obscure mountain fortress, long neglected due to peace time politics, is Cathal’s reward for graduating at the top of his class at the Acadamh Codagh. His superiors dismissed Cathal’s dreams of a nightmarish Jovaian army swarming the walls as childhood dreams. Cathal’s superiors tell him he has no magical trace, so he can’t possibly have magical talents. He is assured that stories of the mythical warrior hero Somhairle having magical skills are simply bard’s tales. Cathal finds Gelligaer manned with misfits no one else wants. He discovers two people want Gelligaer that way: One a traitorous superior officer scheming to see Gelligaer fall, and another a mysterious priestess scheming to see Gelligaer resist the oncoming assault. A priestess who shows Cathal he possesses powers he didn’t think he had. Which one will win: The superior or the priestess?
