When a rash of mysterious and brutal attacks throughout the Hechani Sea shatters tenuous relations, the city-states erupt into a destructive war. Embroiled in the conflict, young Atian officer Kelvar Alexandros is determined to protect his men and his country in the looming trials, despite his growing concern that the enemy may not be as evil as he assumed. Meanwhile, Mistress Telaine Le Fay, sorceress of Gothrond, is dispatched to investigate the hostilities. Her mission is to discover the roots of the conflict and negotiate a peace settlement. The situation proves unclear, however, and she finds herself inextricably tangled in a web of lies, desperately searching for an elusive truth. Telaine’s past mentor, the excitable intellectual, Jax, has a problem of his own. His studies have led him to a discovery that could have dire consequences, and he is determined to discover if the threat he fears is indeed real. In the desert sands of the Great Waste, an adventurous young man named Tor longs for something more than his mundane, everyday scramble for subsistence. Little does he know, Jarwulf, the infamous Blood Berserker from the north, and his mercenary band will soon arrive in his village – and sweep him off to a life he dared not even imagine. Amidst the tide of darkness rising in Vrold, the only hope may be an unlikely alliance, but evil is rarely obvious. It is a subtle force hiding in plain sight, and the truth is hard to find when even heroes can fall prey to its malevolent will...

About the Author:

Dakota Kemp grew up in the Oklahoma Panhandle, where his imagination knew no more bounds than the wide, empty land around him. His love of stories caused him to take up writing while attending college at Southwestern Oklahoma State. A fanatic for all things science fiction and fantasy, Dakota spends his days speculating about the implausible and his nights stargazing. He currently serves as an officer in the U.S. Army.

"5 Stars.  A brilliantly spun tale..."The Arrival" is one of the best fantasy novels I've read this year, harking back to the likes of Christopher Paolini's "Eragon" and George R.R. Martin's "Game of Thrones"." - The Self-Publishing Review
