An abduction in the Yeoman's Wood leads Dia into a terrifying walled city to rescue her sister. A missing father leads half-elf cousins to the same city. As they seek to unite their families, a streetwise rogue leaves his own, vowing never to return. A game of chance draws the four together, when the rogue ends up with a priceless heirloom. Thinking he's found his ticket to a new life; he has unwittingly pocketed an artifact of untold power.
Drawn together by seeming coincidence, the four soon realize they are called to roles in a game much bigger than themselves; a saga that has gone on for centuries. A contest of Knights and Kings has begun against an ancient monarch seeking immortality, and his dark magicians working to elevate their unholy mistress to godhood. With their only ally a mysterious man, for whom death brings no rest, the four must prevent Urgrithka the Hollow from usurping a throne of the gods, or Cyrradon will know an eternity of undeath.
The Call is the first book of the Storm's Rising series, beginning the epic tale of a world created in the image of beauty and balance, and rent asunder by the divisions among gods and mortals.
