Cast down from the Kingdom, cursed, condemned, stripped of flesh, bone and identity for his crime, Sgarrwrath has become The One Whose Name is not spoken, the bane of the Light. He has long existed in formless Darkness, held in check by the Guardians’ dominion, but he has never forgotten the object of the lust that first birthed him into being, Sanctus’ Orb of Power. Within the Orb of Power is contained the Source, hidden in Flame, the most mysterious and
powerful entity in the universe. This treasure is the one thing Sgarrwrath craves above all else and it is the one thing that has always been beyond his reach, until now. Even the Guardians, in whose hearts Flame burns, who breathe and wield its power, have never seen its Source nor harnessed its full potential. They are content to serve the Light. Arawn is not like the others. He is young, untested and he seeks more power though a prophecy reveals the predominance of the Flame belongs to another yet to be revealed. Arawn is easy prey for Sgarrwrath who lures him into Darkness to corrupt Arawn’s Flame to his will in the hope that Flame alone is the key to life, power– everything! Arawn’s brothers, three powerful, incorruptible Guardians
refuse to abandon hope. They journey into Darkness; how far will they go to save him? Will they have the strength to do what must be done even if they are forced to turn the full extent of their power upon Arawn? Or will Sgarrwrath destroy them all?
