The magic of the ancient dragons cannot be ignored.
Learning hes descended from the ancient Deshazl, those once known as the Dragonwalkers, has changed nothing for Fes. He continues to serve Azithan and the empire, even after deceiving them. The ancient Deshazl magic lives within him, but Fes doesnt know how to control it or even if he should try.
An old nemesis approaches him with a job he cant refuse, and hes forced to head toward Toulen. When betrayal separates him from from a friend in need, Fes must begin to understand how to use his Deshazl magic. If he cant, not only will he lose his friend, but innocent people will suffer.
With a growing magic within him, Fes questions not only the nature of his power, hes forced to make a choice between these new connections and the empire.
