From USA Today bestselling author Michael G. Manning comes a new book set in an all new world!

Thomas was no one, an orphan with no past and no memories of his early life. The only clue lies in the strange birthmark on his chest, a mark that may or may not reveal his origin, but will certainly guide him to his destiny.

Growing to manhood he will become a man of consequence and influence, yet the greatest gift he has to offer his people lies not in his power, but in his wisdom. As he strives to reach his potential he will face obstacles great and small and he will discover that some foes are too strong to defeat with power alone.

The greatest of evils can only be stopped when those true of heart are willing to sacrifice blood, tears, and sometimes—their lives.

Customer Reviews


This is another epic book from a wonderful author. This book is a great read and draws you in so that you don't want to put it down. Epic edition to my book collection.

This is the first!

Wow! Rollicking good tale, fun and intriguing characters, and an elegantly woven plot that never stops delivering. Put forth as a sample of Mr. Manning's early work it is ample evidence that great storytelling is at least as much inherent gift as hard work. Well done sir. Next please!
