When a soldier’s grisly murder sparks unrest in the tiny village of Skolja, Brohr’s past marks him as the prime suspect. Haunted by his brother’s ghost, and drawn into a web of dark pacts and tangled loyalties, Brohr must choose between his grandfather’s bitter rebellion, and a chance to forge his own fate.
From the shadows, an all but extinct race of alien demigods plot the end game of their millennia-spanning war, and one has chosen Brohr for his closing gambit.
But Brohr’s grandfather harbors a dark secret that will change everything.
Above it all, a dire omen looms in the sky, spelling the death of Brohr’s world. With doom spiraling toward them, Brohr must lead a desperate rebellion, unearth disturbing family secrets, and tame the raging ghost that haunts him. Can Brohr lead his people out of darkness, or will he succumb to his own terrifying bloodlust, and destroy the very people he has sworn to save?
