Foully betrayed and left to die alone in the tomb of a dead god, Corin Hugh has emerged victorious from an unexpected quest, hungry for revenge and sporting strange new powers. He soon sees the perfect chance to right the wrong that was done to him and rescue an innocent victim in the process.
But he must act quickly, using all of his cunning, because his arch-enemy and betrayer, Ethan Blake, has left his “civilian” days behind and resumed his position as the tyrant Vestossis, a powerful—and seemingly untouchable—member of the mighty ruling family.
Corin is soon joined in his quest by a beautiful and mysterious druid named Aemelia, who possesses otherworldly powers of her own—and, strangely, seems to know Corin better than he knows himself.
Set against a dark backdrop of betrayal, tyranny, and supernatural forces, the two unlikely heroes must combine their powers and, ultimately, learn to trust one another as they race against time itself in an epic battle for freedom and good.
