The Prophecy of Lenar promises that a glorious ruler will arise to replace the dying monarch of Aullor. Fabren Lacalian, the half-human apprentice of a dead wizard, knows the terrible truth underlying that promise. That truth murdered his master and, if revealed, could destroy Fabren’s life. Fleeing in terror, he encounters Daraline Graciel, the archivist who first uncovered the prophecy in an ancient tome. Working together, they must stop the prophecy’s deadly march across the land. For corruption has already spread to the royal capital and the situation grows more desperate by the day.
