The Hawk and Keiritte Alo grew up in the town of Davergen. Their father, Dusheer, had pages from The Book snuck in to study and learn from. As their movement to topple their unjust kings is reaching its climax, they pause to wonder how their father gained access to those pages from a famed book known only to few, and even those believe it to be myth or fancy. Moreover, what hand did Dri, the mage and sword master have in their father’s dealings? This is the tale of Dusheer and Dri, unlikely friends and budding adventurers. They’re lost in time before the Hawk and Keiritte Alo were ever born. They find themselves in the time of Sheava as the Darkening approaches, when the walls still stand strong. History stands before them. And The Book awaits.
