"Brave and beautiful Ranger Brynn Dharielle sets out on a daring mission to free her beloved homeland from tyrannical rule. But she cannot imagine the depth of chaos, corruption and betrayal that seethes amidst a ruthless sect of warrior priests, led and manipulated by an evil chieftain who conceals a dark, age-old secret.
For Brynn and her trusted elven companion Belli'mar Juraviel, the way to Behren turns into a fierce and illuminating voyage beneath the Belt-and-Buckle mountains. And while they face many dangers, the knowledge they acquire will have profound implications for the future of the elven valley, a land shaped by the plotting of a queen desperate to hold onto her magic.
By the time Brynn reaches the land where she once saw her parents murdered, the seeds of revolution are already flourishing. The first salvo of a sweeping battle has begun—one that will threaten to destroy the heart and soul of their world."
