Caina Amalas was a nightfighter of the Ghosts, the spies and assassins of the Emperor of Nighmar, and through her boldness and cunning saved the Empire and the world from sorcerous annihilation.
But the victory cost her everything.
Now she is exiled and alone in the city of Istarinmul, far from her home and friends. Yet a centuries-old darkness now stirs in Istarinmul, eager to devour the city and the world itself.
And Caina is the only one that stands in its way...
Ridmark Arban is the Shield Knight, questing to stop the rise of the evil New God. But Ridmark and his companions are caught in the war between the final remnant of the dying gray elves and the brutal muridach horde.
Unless Ridmark can save the gray elves, he and his friends will die, and the New God will rise in power to enslave the world...
Ridmark has learned that the sorceress Cathala holds the secret of the Seven Swords, and quests to free her from the grasp of an imprisoning spell.
But the Maledicti priests know of Ridmark's quest, and plot to stop him with a deadly new weapon.
For how can a knight fight the shadows in his mind?
So did her mortal enemy, the sorcerer Cassander Nilas.
Now the city of Istarinmul teeters on the brink of civil war and sorcerous annihilation. Unless Caina summons all her bravery and cunning, Cassander's dark spell will kill millions of people.
Starting with the people she loves...
Ridmark Arban is the Shield Knight, but he is the only Swordbearer in the realm of Owyllain.
That means he is the only warrior capable of defending Owyllain from the forces of dark magic.
But the powers of darkness have servants in Owyllain, servants who are more than willing to put a dagger in Ridmark's back...
A sorcerous catastrophe threatens to destroy Istarinmul, and the only the mysterious sorceress Annarah, last loremaster of lost Iramis, knows how to stop it.
To rescue Annarah and save Istarinmul, Caina must brave the Inferno, the hellish fortress of the sinister Immortals.
But those who enter the Inferno never return...
