Renlyn Cornthal has dedicated his life to uncovering the mysteries of the mythical avians known as the rukthar. When he receives a surprise summons to the office of the Brother Superior, Renlyn believes his work has finally earned him the attention of the Sanctum. Instead, he finds himself sent on tedious errand in the company of a man he has every reason to mistrust.
Arnak Dral was once a prominent sentinel. Now, he lives in disgrace, known as the man who failed to protect a prominent member of the Sanctum—and Renlyn's own uncle. But Arnak carries a burden of his own, a heavy secret that hangs over everything he does.
Together, they set out as unwelcome companions, unaware that their mundane journey will take an unexpected twist.
—R.M. Archer, Author of Lost Girl
The world is fascinating, the characters in it both involved in it and deep in their own right, and the writing befitting of classic epic fantasy.
Unique world-building that felt the smallest bit like a video game… Very interesting story.
