There is but one star left in the night sky, and when it falls, the legends portend a final age of destruction if the Sleeping Goddess is not awakened. Time is short, and dreadful things stir in the darkness. They can taste their victory; feel it within their clutches. But all is not lost. Within the Order of the Saints Caliber there is growing dissent. Karinael is part of a small constellation of Saints secretly working to supplant Sanctuary and the demonic Kings who rule the world. Led by Erygion the Standard Bearer, they seek to awaken the Goddess and stem the age of destruction. But Karinael was once apprenticed by Saint Nuriel, a Saint whose very name brings terror to all within the Order. As Nuriel spirals ever further into madness, she learns that her old apprentice has broken the one trust she left her with. Will Nuriel now hunt down and kill the only Saints who have a chance of awakening the Goddess, or will Karinael be able to pull her friend out of the darkness that consumes her? Rook is not the young boy he used to be. A skilled blacksmith under the guidance of his adoptive father, Rook has unlocked the secrets of a mysterious metal that all the nobles covet. To that end, he has secured a good life for those he cares about. But when the King and his daughters come to town, Rook finds himself sucked back into the terrors he thought he left behind as a boy. As he leads a rebellion against the monstrous King and his demonic daughters, some unexpected help arrives in the form of Karinael and her team. But do all the Saints have good intentions? And will Rook be able to shed his old hatreds and embrace them, or will the sway of revenge get the better of him? And there is still the matter of an old shadow that haunts him. The demon, Bulifer’s, payment comes due. Will Rook be able to overcome the demon that desperately seeks to control him, or will the demon’s temptations lead him down a path that places all those he cares about in danger? In Duroton, the ice-demons of the far north march upon the Grimwatch. Leading an elite team of soldiers, Brandrir infiltrates the Shardgrims to see what the Kald are up to, but he quickly discovers more than he bargained for. He finds that an ancient evil awakens, and learns that the Kald might not be his enemy. They are led by a being who has shadowed him all his life, and this being reveals the terrible truth about why the Lands denied him the crown. Brandrir is a pawn in something bigger than he could have ever imagined, but is he on the right side of the board? Will he be able to break the chains that bind him to the final age of destruction, or might he actually want to raise his sword in the name of War and cleanse all the world in fire? Book Two of The Record of the Saints Caliber continues the dark tale with epic battles and surprising twists along the way.
