At the battle of Starstone Lake, Drem and his friends witnessed horrors they’ll never forget. They saw magic warping men into beasts and a demon rise from the dead. So they flee to warn the Order of the Bright Star, even as the demonic high priestess, Fritha, trails their every step.

Concealed within Forn Forest, Riv struggles to understand with her half-breed lineage. It represents the warrior angels’ most dangerous secret, so when their high captain tracks her down, he aims to kill.

Meanwhile, formidable demonic forces are assembling a war-host so mighty that it could threaten man-kind's very existence. With the angels already divided and facing betrayal, it's up to Drem, Rev and the Bright Star’s warriors to step up like heroes of old to save their world.

But can the light triumph when the dark is rising?

Continue the heroic fantasy series with A Time of Courage.
