Banished to the King’s army for marrying a commoner, Tyrus Faron fights neither for king nor country. He fights to defend the peasant conscripts forced to stand with him, doomed to die too young.

When he returns home to find his people on the brink of starvation, he must fight a new kind of war against the Baron who would enslave his family’s last manor.

But it is the treasure his wife has left behind that will reveal the path to a final chance at honor and redemption. When the wrath of an ancient power reawakens, Tyrus will face the battle of a lifetime when he discovers the one thing he cannot live without.  And the only thing left worth dying for.
