"Tolkien meets C.S. Lewis somewhere between Mordor and the wardrobe"-Steve Trinward. When a cursed sword turns up in Shalahem, the fulfillment of a stream of ancient prophecies is set in order. A motley crew of riders is formed. Their mission is to take the sword to the Immortal King that he might destroy the evil ruler, Darvan, a king cursed by the Immortal King years ago when he sought to usurp his throne. Only an Immortal king holds the power to kill Darvan and there remains only one immortal king. But an ancient prophecy has foretold of a betrayer among the close knit group, one who wants the sword of power for himself because the sword renders its possessor undefeatable and offers him standing among Darvan's ranks. Their journey takes them to far reaching places and they discover that the evil king has been busy at work oppressing villages and cities with his dark knights, men cursed with the rotting of their flesh. Now, they must also try to become deliverers to these oppressed people. Their mission is a dangerous journey and the dark riders and other evil presences of Darvan's kingdom complicate their mission. a rider is taken captive, it becomes apparent that they will have to go to Quadar, the land of Darvan, a dark and cursed land. As frustrations arise among the group, so do tensions. But for their mission to be successful, they must work together. An ancient prophecy also spoke of one arising who becomes a keeper of the sword, a task no one would want because the sword has a persuasive pull to it, a destructive power. In the midst of the conflict, there is a budding romance...and another lost to a mortal condition. A story filled with quirky characters including knights, a princes warrior, wizards, giants, vikings, Earthdwellers, sorbs, and more. The ultimate story of good vs evil. Strong characterization. Epic in every way.
