Life for David Corbin, Solas Beir of Cai Terenmare, is grim, at best. The kingdom he rules is on the brink of war. The love of his life has vanished without a trace, and David fears the worst—that she was brutally murdered by mercenaries controlled by the dark lord, Tynan Tierney. His friend, Jon, has been captured, and David has no idea how to rescue him, or if he’s even still alive. The Eastern Oracle has pledged loyalty to Tierney’s cause, and all communication with the other Oracles has ceased. And to make matters worse, a new evil has risen, the mysterious Sower, a monster puppeteered by Tierney himself.
