A kingdom in peril. A prophecy set in motion…
The Ceringion Reginum has invaded the Kingdom of Actondel. As armies clash in the east, Tormjere is conscripted and sent to train with the secretive King’s Rangers, but that training is cut short when he stumbles upon an attack on Kataria, Princess of Actondel.
Unable to rely on her family’s name and hounded by her assailants they flee towards the fighting, searching for answers and anyone they can trust. As Tormjere and Kataria struggle to survive on battlefields stalked by living nightmares they find themselves bound ever more tightly together by the unusual gift they share.
To end the war they must learn to harness powers they barely understand, while trying to live up to a prophecy they never knew existed.
David A. Godwin’s debut novel Eyes of the Blind established a fantastic new fantasy universe filled with mystery, danger, and magic. Now he returns us to that richly textured world, where courage and divinity struggle to rise above the profane and victory is seldom colored in black and white.
