When Captain Vinyanel Ecleriast loses both a lifelong friend and faithful mount to a military mission gone awry, the elven cavalry officer must summon the inner strength to tackle an unexpected calling. A baffling encounter with a half-elven prophetess named Veranna reveals to Vinyanel that the Maker of All has ordained he should become not just an officer, but one day, the high commander of the cavalry’s First Airborne Division.
Circumstances introduce Vinyanel to Majestrin, the ancient silver dragon who becomes both mount and confidant. But the things hardest won are often held shortest. A surreptitious enemy plot thrusts Vinyanel into yet another intervention on behalf of his beloved nation. Only if he can navigate the snares of deception, temptation, and murderous intent will he emerge victorious. From the realization of his Divine Summons to the exploration of A Greater Strength, Vinyanel learns that not all troubles can be solved from a dragon’s saddle. The hardest-fought battles rage upon the field of the soul.
