The world of Arkaria is a dangerous place, filled with dragons, titans, goblins and other dangers. Those who live in this world are faced with two choices: live an ordinary life or become an adventurer and seek the extraordinary.
Cyrus Davidon finds himself far from his home in Sanctuary, in the land of Luukessia, a place divided and deep in turmoil. With his allies at his side, Cyrus finds himself facing off against an implacable foe in a war that will challenge all his convictions - and one he may not be able to win.
This, and every book in this series are the type you cant put down. I started reading this, and without even realizing it read over half of it, and completely lost all track of time. the characters were very real in their conflicted state of heroism and fears. not too perfect, as some heros tend to be. the conflict adds a dimension of personality that really has you rooting for them at every turn.
