For the last three years, Daniel and Aidan have lived with only each other for company since King Argyle's men came and enslaved their parents.
When Argyle's mercenaries come to take Daniel, Aidan uses his little-known gift to fight off the gathering party.
What begins as a fight to save one boy unexpectedly turns into a war that may affect the existence of the kingdom itself.
