What if all you knew was lost? What if destruction surrounded you? How would you rebuild? And where would you turn for help? Luik, now son to a dead King, finds himself injured and headed for Tontha in the north of a besieged Dionia. Here he sorts through the trauma of the recent past and attempts to piece together the whereabouts of his fallen Dibor and his friends Fane, Hadrian, and Princess Anorra. As work begins on fortifying Mt. Dakka, now under his command, Luik journeys south to the wreckage of Adriel in the hopes of discovering anything that might help him find his missing friends. But he uncovers far more than he had ever anticipated, and upon returning north he uncovers more shocking clues about the secret order the Knights of The Lion. While hope is kindled with the discovery of many of his surviving countrymen, a deep foreboding takes root as Morguis grip on Dionia tightens. Luiks path is plagued by mysterious encounters with the taken and haunted by the effects of evil upon Creation. But even more is the sudden reappearance of many rumored to be dead including the missing Hadrian. When strange summonses begin to call for his aid, Luik embarks on perilous missions to the far corners of his country, even risking everything in search of the fabled City of Ot. Will Luik reunite with his Dibor? Or will he find them having met the similar fate of Dionias Kings?
