The Giver of Iron
by Nathaniel Firmath
For four years, Second Ray Taemon, son of Alais, has been a messenger. As an Initiate of Brek, he has been trained to march and fight; only by force of obedience has he accepted the role pressed upon him. Now, tasked with a new assignment by the Onidai, himself, he will reclaim his armor, his sword and his shield, and lead his people to a land of ancient nightmares.
