The great Empire of the Targhono people is falling. Terón of Balakor, the son of one of their most powerful nobles, has been exiled because of his faith in the Northstar. He now lives in a distant wilderness town called the Firdale, where he is an object of scorn due to his bloodline. However, he has developed strong bonds with Adya, a pale-skinned Northwoman, and Illendar, an elven warrior of the Star kindred.While an invading army threatens to destroy the town, a mysterious Shadow begins murdering followers of the Northstar. An assassin soon slays the Firdale's noble lord, and Terón takes command of the town's warriors.

The sinister Shadow still pursues him and his friends, and despite Terón's best efforts to guard his loved ones, his strength fails him.
