Roland der Causland lives with his father in the Marian Mountains, learning the carpentry trade until the fateful night he meets Maglin, the seeker. Maglin arrives just in time to prevent a Black Legion spy from taking the boy. The swift attack is unsuccessful and now Roland falls into the care of the Order. Completely unaware of the existence of magicians and magic, he now needs to be trained to use the power he doesn't even realize he possesses - the power of the Bringer of Light.
The only question now: is there enough time. The Dark Lord's prison is steadily weakening and there is no way to know when he will be strong enough to break free.
