A simple walk in the forest, found Sarchise face to face with four dwarves. They had not come out of High Mountain in generations. Little did he know at the time this chance meeting would set in motion, epic battles and the very existence of Elvenshore would hang in the balance. Should he save the dwarves, or leave them to their fate in the wilds of the Westwood?
Varus is the fiercest soldier in the Roman legion, and the most undisciplined. Fighting Thracian pirates on the high seas, he faces attacks not just from spears and arrows, but from divine magic. With the enemy closing in, Varus joins a desperate battle for survival, made worse by his own divided instincts. Will Roman blades be strong enough to survive against ocean gods?
At first, a collective power in the Seven Soleran Kingdoms made sense. United under the Council, they thought it would be the end of years of war and death.
When the Council ordered the systematic murder of those capable of wielding magic – Runics – as reparation for their role in the Soleran loss of the Great War, no one thought twice of the order.
Except a few Dragonics – prestigious dragon riders – who defied the damning orders and instead demanded justice. But, their call for defiance came too late.
Now, those against the Council’s oppressive reign have long since been outcast to the fringes of society – their numbers and will dwindling. Alaister Paine, Commander of the Rogue Dragonics – an elite force of Resistance Dragon Riders – leads the quest for freedom and justice with little hope of success.
On the eve of a political victory for the Council, Paine deciphers one of his predecessor’s logs revealing that one Runic – a woman of untold magic – was hidden from the Council’s grasp.
Find the Runic, and the Rogues will finally be able to enact a legendary prophecy meant to free Solera and bring justice back to its people.
Trouble is… they are not the only ones searching for the last Soleran Runic.
