In the fractured nation of Ostwyn, where the forces of politics, greed, and even the vilest of magics work to enslave all who have not yet yielded to their influence, one young man, Daxon - his parents murdered without provocation by assassins and dark priests - sets off on a journey of vengeance but soon finds himself thrust into the center of events beyond his comprehension.
Falling in with a disreputable group of traveling merchants, thieves, rogues, and an oddly honorable warrior given current company, Daxon travels in search of answers - Why were his parents murdered? Does his mother's necklace from a long-dead religion have anything to do with their death? How can he succeed against a powerful sect of magic-wielding priests? And how can he protect his newfound friends from the deadly forces arrayed against them?
Daxon's answers may lie in a mysterious treasure rumored to contain powerful artifacts such as armor and weapons that could give him the edge he needs. Of course, his morally questionable companions may have other plans for this lucrative treasure...
