When Lieutenant Commander Vinyanel Ecleriast intercepts a missive from the legendary Elgadrim people, the possibility the notorious dragon-kin may still pose a threat to elves and men drives Vinyanel on a self-appointed mission to investigate. Despite the misgivings of both his subordinates and his prophetess mentor, Vinyanel pursues his hunch and discovers the dragon-kin intend to employ the Chalice of Gherag-Tal in a gruesome plot of sacrifice and domination.
Vinyanel races against the relentless march of time running short, stymied by his own folly and unexpected arrivals, including a hatchling dragon with whom he shares an unwitting but unbreakable bond. Only if he can reach the dragon-kin stronghold despite these obstacles will he thwart his enemies’ plans to summon a supernatural army.
A festering grudge. A quest kindled.
A wound’s depth. In the midst of warring factions stands the truth of valor’s worth.
