The Dark Way doesn’t die easily.
With the Dark Way defeated, King Ellis starts restoring the House of Tristan. To him and Shannan, a son and heir is born, Prince Nigel.
But not all is blissful in Allon. Kell, Captain of the immortal Guardians, never found Dagar’s original talisman, the one the Master of the Dark Way infused with his evil. Sinister tension erupts into rebellion. Sir Owain, whom Ellis pardoned for aiding the dethroned King Marcellus, leads the uprising. But Owain isn’t trained in the Dark Way, so how could he possess Dagar’s talisman?
Ellis leads his army to quell the insurrection before it can erupt into civil war. His departure ends up placing the lives of Shannan and Nigel in jeopardy. If he returns to help them, he could lose his kingdom. If he continues against the enemy, he could lose his wife and son. He must trust their survival to the Guardian warrior, Avatar, and two teenage brothers, Wess and Bosley.
What will these nephews of King Marcellus do? Will they aid the House of Tristan or join Owain’s insurrection and claim their birthright?
