They came slinking and sliding through cold, flattened grasses…
When the king and queen of Vare decide on a little tinkering with apocalyptic prophecy, they find that the gods will bow before nobody’s throne. For one thousand years, repelling the rhythmic raids of the Wyrlokhen monsters has been more than religious duty for the kingdom of Vare; it has been survival. But as the raids trail off to yet another end, all of that is changing. For the first time ever, this end to the raids will be answered by an invasion of Vare’s own. The army has barely confronted their Wyrlokhen foes when the soldier Taen Llegarion and the druidess Lorana Naborl vanish into the Wyrlokhen’s domain, the Rekhwyr Wilderness, with just a smattering of allies—just barely enough of a smattering, in fact, to accidentally fulfill the very prophecy the invasion was meant to avoid. As politics at home and prophecies in the Wilderness unfold, Taen comes closer to the destiny knows he shouldn’t aspire to while Lorana, caught between her duty to her beliefs and her love for Taen, must decide where her true loyalties lie.
