Betrayed and left for dead, Corin Hugh emerges victorious from a mind-bending adventure in the distant past with a powerful thirst for vengeance - and strange new powers. He soon sees the perfect opportunity to right the wrong that he suffered and save an innocent victim. The focus of his wrath is Ethan Blake, the sly traitor who incited Corin's men to betray him. But Corin must move fast because Blake has resumed his former position among the mighty - and seemingly invincible - tyrant Vestossis. Aiding Corin in his quest is the lovely and mysterious druid Aemilia, who somehow seems to know Corin's very soul.
"Even better than the first book!"
The Kingdom of the Sarianne teeters on the brink. While its tyrant king plays out his petty vendettas, rebellion foments on the edges of his domain. Politics and power struggles gamble civilization on the tides of war. Yet war is not the greatest threat to civilization. A far older enemy rises. The dragons are waking and these fiends of Chaos will swarm across the world of men, razing it to bedrock, just as they have done in ages past. But this time, the world of men has a champion in Daven Carrickson.
Even for a charismatic pirate, three years is a long time to chase after an unimaginable treasure hidden in the ruins of an ancient city. But when the fabled riches turn out to be virtually worthless, the outraged crew mutinies and leaves their former captain for dead. He is rescued by a mysterious king and transported back to a time of dwarves, druids, and fairies. Enchanting as it is, though, his only wish is to return home and find justice - but only the king has the power to return him...for a price.
"It wasn't that bad, but I didn't finish listening"
Daven Carrickson grew up as a beggar in the filthy alleys beneath the shadows of the palace. He's the son of a known thief, disgraced and despised. His only real talent is his ability with a sword, and his only real chance at finding honor or a home is a desperate dream of joining the King's Guard. Then, Daven receives a new future when Master Claighan invites him to study magic at the Academy. The wizard offers to make him into a new kind of soldier: a swordsman equally skilled with forged blades and mystic forces.

However, he will need more than just a magic sword to draw Ephitel down from his throne. As Corin searches for allies in what may become his last, desperate stand against the gods, his quest takes him deep into the heart of two ancient orders.
