Three gods rule the world of Caliel.
Nimrod, once a human mage, now the god of healing and light, presides over the great cities of the west. Shayna, once a Dryad, now the goddess of nature and balance, holds sway over the vast forests of the south. And Vraxor, once a demon, now the grim god of death and darkness, rules the harsh and rugged swamps and mountains of the east.
In Vraxor's society, where demons walk the streets along with humans and the god's terrible priesthood rules with an iron fist, a girl named Myrren has begun to see inconsistencies in the beliefs she's been taught all her life. Accompanied by her demonic guardian and a brash young nobleman, she sets out on a pilgrimage to escape the hardships of her world and find out for herself what the truth is.
However, what begins as a simple journey soon spins out of control, as she's swept up in events vaster and more perilous than her darkest dreams: a life-and-death struggle for power in the highest circles of her homeland, the rise of a prophesied hero destined to destroy Vraxor's civilization, the rediscovery of a holy symbol called the Dark Heart that's been lost for centuries, and the ominous discovery that the enigmatic and deadly priests of Vraxor are pursuing her for reasons unknown.
As she flees for her life across the length of Caliel, Myrren will find friendship in unexpected quarters and new allies she never would have imagined. But she'll need all the help she can get if she's to escape her new enemies alive..
