A rich epic filled with mystery and magic.
After a terrible mistake, John Ross, a Knight of the Word, turns his back on his service to the Lady, to the Light, to the Word. He sets aside his magic and tries to build a normal life for himself, but a fallen Knight of the Word is too much of a temptation for the Void to pass up. His only hope is Nest Freemark, the girl he fought beside to keep the world from harm 5 years ago. Nest is approached to go to the aid of John Ross but she is reluctant to get involved with something she would rather ignore. She must restore John's faith, because his life - and hers - are what is on the line.
