The rage lies in the back of his mind. Though he promised never to let it take control of him gain, Callobus Swordstar can feel his curse growing. When it comes between letting the rage loose and the chance of death, which will he choose? Does he unleash the power to save his family or hold back with fears that if using it, he could kill those he loves most?
The dragon is dead, but his mother and sister are still missing. Callobus has vowed to find those holding his family and kill them. But first, he must traverse a desert and find a town that doesn’t seem to exist. With his friends by his side, he can accomplish anything. Or can he?
Nothing is as it seems as he makes his way through rock and sand. It appears that in every town there are those who wish to do him harm. Evil lies in the darkest shadows.
