A suicidal mission. A cataclysmic power. A darkness that threatens to consume them all.
Killien is hell-bent on accompanying the Battlemages beyond the Black Wall to satisfy the demands of a battle-weary king, spite the council who thwarts him, and redeem himself from his dark past.
That alone promises to be a perilous mission, one that has killed hundreds of men before him.
But when a Seer predicts the birth of a child that will unite the world or destroy it, and assassins come for Killien and his family, he must do everything in his power to protect those he loves, even if it means giving into the monster he is feared to be.
