An unspeakable act. Iarion flees with Barlo in a useless effort to outrun the heinous crime his dwarf friend committed under desperate circumstances.
Meanwhile, the rest of Lasniniar marches to war. Would-be gods drive the humans against the elder races, granting the most devout of their worshipers magic of their own.
Into this chaotic darkness, a new power emerges.
...A power only Iarion can face.
The future of the World of Lasniniar hangs in the balance in this eighth novel in the epic fantasy series by award-winning author, Jacquelyn Smith.
