Can one man save the world from an unimaginable evil? Find out in this tale of sword and sorcery from New York Times bestselling author Jack Conner.

In the glorious empire of Qazradan, Davril, the youngest son of the Emperor seems to have it all -- youth, ability, intelligence -- and he's poised on the brink of a great destiny. Not only that, but his family seems ideal, the perfect royal family -- not oppressive but nurturing to their empire, almost democratic. But the royal family has a dark secret, and after Davril proves himself with a military victory over a rival, his father decides to reveal the secret ahead of time.

When Davril learns the hideous truth at the heart of the empire, that a great, otherworldly being must be given a regular human sacrifice -- worse, that it must be Davril's beloved who dies and he himself who wields the blade, Davril takes drastic and bloody action.

When that happens, the wheels of fate begin to turn. The great and awful being that was supposed to be appeased is now wrathful. How can Davril set things right with the empire collapsing into chaos and a vicious cult out for his blood? If things continue to spiral out of control, an otherworldly horror will engulf the world. But if Davril does set things right, it could mean the death of his beloved.

What will he do?
