Gray gave up his simple life as a farmer to march off to battle with the armies of the crown. But when he comes face-to-face with the horrors of war on a battlefield far from his home, he finds himself drawn by a mysterious and irresistible Call to find the legendary monastery known as Dragon’s Rest. There, he meets Petros, a spoiled but loyal-hearted baron’s son, and Emil, a nervous young man with an unexplained and violent supernatural gift. As they face the challenges of the monastery, they learn about themselves, and about each other, and discover within themselves a power that they never knew that they had. For Dragon’s Rest exists to train Paladins, those men and women who have felt the Call to defend mankind from the Demonic forces which hunger for human bodies and souls. In order to graduate, they must face not only the daunting tests of the monastery, but a hidden danger that threatens to destroy Dragon’s Rest forever.
