Seldar, an experienced Sorcerer and Guardian, travelling for more than twenty-five years with Arella, his bonded Ponfour, is about to have his life turned upside down.
Trerin, a young warrior-shapeshifter, dreams of bonding with a beautiful Sorceress and earning a statue in the Hall of Heroes.
Their God, however, has plans for them that neither expects.
Meanwhile, in the Kingdom of Daria, something is killing villagers and townsfolk while they sleep. Seldar has encountered similar deaths before and knows that worse is coming. Only the magic of the Guardians of Reyth can restore safety to that realm before the population is wiped out, but how can they fight something that’s invisible and insatiably hungry for human flesh?
This is a standalone and can be enjoyed without having read any of the series.
