Constable Dallin Brayden knows who he is, what he's about, and he doesn't believe in fate. "Wilfred Calder" has no idea who he is, what he's about, and has been running from fate for as long as he can remember. When Wil is brought in for questioning as a witness to a brutal murder - and subsequently flees - Dallin is dragged by duty into the chaos of ancient myth, fanatical religion, and the delicate politics of a shaky truce between two perpetually warring countries, all of which seem to hinge on the slender shoulders of the man he knows is not Wilfred Calder.
