They called him the Volatar. He came from nothing. Found his power. Became a legend, then lost it all.
Now he has all the power in the world but can't touch it. With war growing, an old enemy on his heels, his best friend by his side, only the north holds the secret to reconnecting with his lost power.
But war has a way of pushing old heroes aside.
Hevith Alaster knew nothing of the Hith when their dark magic took his family away. Life on the wagon train had been simple. Keep moving north, stay ahead of the war.
But war found him all the same.
Hurt, humbled, and left to rot in a northern prison, Hevith must carve out a new life for himself in the wake of tragedy - but only if he can find a way to break free before the Hith break him. Either he must rise to the challenge or he will be yet another casualty on the Hith's path to total domination.
