What evil lurks beneath the surface of corruption...
Azren the Afflicted plunged Draza into the greatest of all wars, but from the ruins of victory emerged the Council of the Alliance, sworn defenders of the righteous and enemy of maligned forces. Or so it once was. Forty years later corruption bleeds from its leaders, leaving the land at the mercy of the wealthy and powerful.
Assassins have been sent forth, an unthinkable kidnapping committed, one king is being manipulated while another is stabbed in the back. Caught in this game of intrigue and deception, a reunited band of Alliance members must uncover a sinister agenda or face becoming victims themselves.
The dice have been cast, destinies intertwined and an ancient prophecy dug up. But the deeper the band delves, the more questions remain. Can solving a mystery from the past be the key to events of the present? Will the arrival of a tormented stranger help their cause, or lead them down a dark and dangerous path? And perhaps the most important question of all: does any of it matters, or are their deaths as well as everyone they have ever known, already foretold in the threads?
