After his friend is killed during a botched mission, the mercenary Kefier is chased down by former associates for the crime. Already once branded a murderer, fate seems to continue to frown on him when he comes face-to-face with his friend's sister: Sume, a young woman reeling from her own string of bad luck. As one flees from the past and the other runs to it, they find themselves embroiled in a plot to restore a magical beast to life using children as sustenance.
In the meantime, the young, arrogant merchant Ylir takes a special interest in Kefier while he battles with a powerful mage, one whose name has been long forgotten in legend. At the crux of their conflict is that same, terrible creature with one eye, cast from the womb of a witch, with powers so immense whoever possesses it holds the key to bring the continent to its knees.
Come and discover K.S. Villoso's debut fantasy series, which has been called "ambitious," "remarkably solid," and "expertly set up."
