For readers who love the intrigue and widening scope of epic fantasy like Sanderson's Mistborn and Week's The Black Prism, this is your next must-read fantasy series.
Michael Kingman has discovered his destiny, but the distance to what he wants, namely a life with Serena, the queen of Hollow, is vast and cruel.
Meanwhile, Dark - fearsome mercenary, sometime mentor, and son of Michael's nemesis - is trying to manipulate him to serve his own hidden agenda.
Realising that he is outclassed by the centuries-long machinations to end the world as he knows it, Michael must gather his allies and push to achieve the impossible. The alternative is unimaginable.
And when have bad odds ever stopped Michael from getting what he wants?
