When Zach turned his back on Carym, even as his lifelong friend contended with the haunted lands of the Black Baron, he had had his doubts about the wisdom of his choice. But a chance encounter with a patrol of the corrupt peacekeepers of Powyss, the Red Dragons, showed Zach a sample of the powers of his new dagger, and all thoughts of his friends were forgotten.
The lure of the seedy and dark underworld of Powyss was irresistible. Gambling, thievery, murder, were all ways that Zach was good at making money. But Powyss offered more than he bargained for.
A tragic event prompted Zach to take revenge on the corrupt Red Dragons who police, and terrorize, the city of Powyss and Zach is no longer a small time player. As the bodycount of the Red Dragon mercenaries rises, far greater powers begin to take notice of this mysterious “Shadowblade.”
But the pull of fate, and the minions of the Shadow, will not be ignored and Zach will have to contend with the call of the Everpool once more.
