Callobus Swordstar only wants a normal life, but a curse that threatens to consume him has assured the rest of his days will be filled with chaos. Although a powerful weapon, does he dare use the curse to help those around him, or does he fight for control as his family and friends are destroyed?
When things go from bad to worse, Callobus must turn to unlikely allies and depend on friends that he puts in danger just by being close to them. When a dragon shatters all he holds dear and threatens to obliterate his world, the true test begins. Will he accept help or go it alone on his quest to kill the creature?
The dragon must die before he can save his family.
He wants to become a warrior.
He needs to become a hero.
He must become a slayer.
