Beware the wrath of a patient man. Patercius-once the Incan Sun God, Inti-is on a path of destruction. Believing the spirits to be demons, the knight has tasked himself with fulfilling the Light's prophecy and ridding the world of shapeshifters once and for all. The great dragon Nwyfre, having reunited with his true love, is on a similar path of hatred. As the young Guardian's memories return to him one by one, he remembers just how much Patercius has ravaged his and Nessie's lives. As the final battle grows nigh, spirits from around the world must work together to commune with the essence of Earth itself in order to keep the two from tearing each other-and the planet-apart.
