~ an epic fantasy series ~
The Old has returned…and what once was, will be again.
The Hallowed Land, they called it. A paradise the likes of which no longer exists, where none went hungry, crime was but a story, and wolves walked beside men as brothers. But when the Shadow fell across the world the great forests turned to dust, the mighty rivers ran dry, and it is said the very air became poison. None have dared to wander there in over a thousand years.
Until now. Asa O’Dair and his adopted brother Kael venture into the Tainted Land on a dare from someone they once called friend, and when Asa spills sacred blood on its once-sacred soil, fulfilling an ancient prophecy, he sets in motion a series of events that have been millennia in the making.
Hunted by friend and foe alike, Asa and Kael must journey to the city-state of Asphodel, the home of the Graceborn, who can wield the world’s latent power to formidable effect. It is there that they learn the roles they must play in the coming storm, and of the treacherous path that destiny has set before them both.
For an evil long-thought vanquished has awoken…and if it gets free it will drown the world in darkness.
