For nearly twenty years, the six Gods of Trivallyn have been silent and deaf to the prayers of their mortals. In their absence, the world has been ravaged by ice storms, earthquakes, plague and typhoons. War is brewing and imminent across all the lands, causing words forsaking the lost Gods to be whispered within every realm.
With his country posed upon the brink of battle, Prince Kaymin Numont unexpectedly finds himself drawn into an encounter with a strange man—one who claims to know not only the reasons for the Gods' absence, but also the truth behind all the disasters of nature occurring throughout the lands. This man also gives name to the true force threatening their world, a force intent upon manipulating all of Trivallyn into its own destruction.
Together with his royal wizard, Jian, Kaymin begins a journey that will lead them through foreign lands, political upheaval, unknown dangers, and surprising allies. The battle for Trivallyn has begun.
