RIDMARK ARBAN was once a Swordbearer, a knight of renown. Now he is a branded outcast, stripped of his sword, and despised as a traitor.
But he alone sees the danger to come, and undertakes the dangerous quest to stop the return of the Frostborn.
At last he knows how the Frostborn shall return. A weapon of great magical power waits in a ruined dwarven city, a weapon with the power to stop the return of the Frostborn.
Assuming the ruined city's guardians do not kill Ridmark first...
Yet the realm of Andomhaim is riven with civil war. The false king Tarrabus has usurped the crown in the name of the shadow of Incariel, and the loyal lords must fight the ruthless rebels.
Unless Ridmark can defeat Tarrabus and reunify Andomhaim, the Frostborn will prevail.
But Tarrabus Carhaine, deadly and wicked, will not be defeated without terrible cost...
After a year of battle, the war has ground to a bloody stalemate. Unless Ridmark can find new allies, the Frostborn will win through slow attrition.
But the shadow of the Frostborn has fallen over all lands, and Ridmark might not live long enough to find new allies...
