Rydian Halt has defeated one of the immortal Alfur, the alien species that has ruled over humanity for generations. With newfound power burning in his veins, for a brief moment, anything seemed possible. Freedom for himself, for his people, for the planet Talamh.
Until the Haze struck.
Now cast into the wildlands of Talamh, Rydian struggles for survival — and his very sanity. Each time he uses his new power, the Haze threatens, tearing at his mind. But without its aid, Rydian won’t last a day against the beasts that stalk him.
He needs an ally, one that can teach him about the Light that now burns within him. The Alfur have kept its secrets close, but there is one who might aid him, an Alfur who seems too loath her own people almost as much as a human.
Rotin, gladiator of the Alfur.
