Soon the Nethera will unleash their secret plan. They will ignite a new conflict, enslave both species, and transform Aarda into a living hell.

Rehaak, the Abrhaani Scholar, on a quest for knowledge, exiled as a Heretic, will face the Nethera alone if he can't find allies.

Laakea, a young Eniila Warrior, is marked for death. While fleeing for his life, he uncovers a mystery. He and Rehaak must rise above centuries of hatred and solve the puzzle to stop the Nethera.

Isil, an older Abrhaani woman, has suffered a horrific loss and escaped abuse. Life has left her scarred in body and spirit. She must bind the outcasts together and combine their skills to defeat the demonic Nethera.

Rehaak the Heretic has finally accepted his calling as a Prophet. Isil, Laakea, and the people of New Hope and Dun Dale have rallied around him. Even the mighty Aethera added their support against their ancient enemies, the Nethera.


Three young Sokai, Aibhera, Kyonna and Simea brought knowledge of long forgotten abilities from the Sokai refuge in Abalon. It might be enough to turn the tide and stop the Nethera and their followers from destroying Aarda? The six outcasts now understand why S’ek’zekaar plans to destroy all the followers of The Old Way.


Despite the advances, there’s still one problem. The Nethera are gaining strength on the Island of Khel Braah and gathering followers in Baradon, the Eniila homeland. The Evil Ones have a new strategy that involves Laakea’s father Aelfric.


Even with the extra help, Rehaak and his friends are still hopelessly outnumbered. Will their determination be enough to turn the tide of destruction? The quest seems to require a dangerous journey to Narragan, and then on to Baradon where civil war threatens to erupt. The bloodthirsty Eniila are unlikely to tolerate strangers in their land.
