Four centuries ago, the Kingdom of Orlend and her allies beat off the Larezan Empire. Now, they-re back, and this time Orlend stands alone. The hand of a traitor has thrown open her borders. The Dawn Crusade marches unopposed. At its head are the demonic Knights of the Dawn, seeking the sack of nations and the birth of a new Age.|
With the army of the King routed and the Larezan Orders destroying everything in their path, all seems lost. It is every man for himself, until a few brave souls choose another path. They are Maden Kolans - once the First Gladiator of the Empire, now a man with no future but revenge. Jeran Pars, a young Captain saddled with a responsibility that might break him. And Litham Sarsen, a scholar who has seen through treason to the heart of evil that lies behind it.
Their path will take them North, to the ancient castle of Jagh Mor-ek and the refuge of legend.
The Gates of Hell have been breached.
The Dawn Crusade is coming.
And it-s up to them to stand against it
