When Raziel’s light goes out, Ashmedai’s shadow falls. The Order of Raziel rules the five kingdoms as it has done for a thousand years, requiring that every child who exhibits aspects of the divine blood submit to its direction and control. Alain is Azzan, one of those remnants raised and groomed by the Allentian chapter, and he desires nothing more than to join his fellow knights in their fight against the mindless but deadly Accursed. But the life of a knight is full of pitfalls, the most dangerous of which will require far more than divine strength and speed to overcome. Coupled with Gerard, a stoic, elder knight harboring strong opinions about the order and the very nature of Azzan, Alain discovers exactly how the Allentian people view knights and the order’s interference in their lives. Yet even that realization cannot prepare him for the depth of the betrayal he will uncover. Will his years of training be enough to help him survive questioning his allegiance, his faith, and even himself, or will that very training be the source of his downfall? One thing’s for certain, if Alain can live long enough to expose the truth he’s found, neither he, the five kingdoms, nor the order itself will ever be the same.
