The lands are without magic... and the northern gods are whispering...

Magic within the world was destroyed in the age before. But this ordained city, a last hold for dwarves, elves, and all folk of the old world and of the old gods, stands as a refuge for those deemed evil... the enemies of his masters.

His mission will be the last blow in a great crusade against magic but the true evil is not as he understands. An awakening is coming, darkness is on the horizon, and learning of his forgotten ancestry confuses his convictions. His masters would answer his betrayal with death. Now he must choose to follow their will and live or accept his true path and the consequences that come.
