The truth will set you free, but what happens when the truth is a lie?
Rhona and her paladin brother Alastar have left the protection of the paladins and are now hunted by the same group. Feeling like he can still make a difference for the people, Alastar is looking for his version of the Holy Grail. The search for the magical Sword of Light takes Rhona and Alastar to an island rumored to be haunted and overrun by remnant. What they discover there will change the fate of Roneland, but in ways they never would have imagined.
Along the way, Alastar is surrounded by the people he needs as his beliefs start falling to the reality of truth. When you know the truth about magic... anything is possible. Set on the foundation laid by the Kurtherian Gambit Series, Shades of Dark tells an entirely new story in the Age of Magic - and of the heroes and villains who battle for control of its destiny.
