Mystic and historian, Sir Adam Sinclair is Master of the Hunt, leader of a secret brotherhood at war with the dark and unholy Powers that menace our world. He has had many names, lived many lives, but his mission remains the same; to protect the Light from those who would tread the Dark Roads. In his time, he has challenged the forces of evil and been victorious. Now evil is rising once again - an extraordinary evil born of ancient elemental magic and twentieth century ambition. And Adam Sinclair will face the most unthinkable crime against his kind; the murder of an Adept.
