After the death of the legendary knight Huma, the renegade minotaur Kaz wanders the lands of Ansalon. Hunted by his own kinsmen for escaping the servitude of the Dark Queen, Kaz discovers that he has also been declared an outlaw by the Knights of Solamnia, who had once hailed him as a hero.
But he has no idea why.
With old comrades now hunting him as a dreaded enemy, Kaz searches for the truth. Magic and treachery assail him from every side, but it is the ghosts of the past that may prove the most dangerous threat.
