In a land of direwolves and dragons, the Abdita are a species devoted to maintaining the balance between man and the earth. Guardians by nature, their powers are misunderstood.
When a dark force rises, the balance of life is unsettled. Blight and sickness spread.
Desperate for answers, King Rouaix Godfrey XVII turns to the mysterious Prime Order. He sets his knights—led by the unequaled Ser Pagaene—on the Abdita.
But the High Priestess of the Adbita summons a different kind of champion—Esyld, a guardian with wisdom on her side.
Thrown together, each tests the patience and fortitude of the other. But both factions carry dark secrets, and it may take more than either nature or man alone to stop what is coming.
