Book Details

Death, Darkness, Demons, and Dragons . . .

Darkness, Death, Demons, and Dragons . . .

Such are the things that have been reawakened in Sargoria. Marik's mission to resurrect the dark mage has been met with success. Zar Khan's return has beckoned the advent of his former allies: the demon soldiers of the Abyss, the dark dragons, and The Collective.

By far, the most discrete and dangerous of Zar Khan's revived allies is The Collective, a group of six wraithlike men who specialized in brutal, magical assassination. The Collective have made it their top priority, as commanded by their dark master, to capture Cedric, or kill him.

Cedric must face his most dangerous enemies yet in a land where hope seems to have vanished from the face of the continent. Evil runs rampant in Sargoria, and only Cedric has the power to stop its minions . . . if he is able to survive his encounters with the forces of darkness.

One man. One goal. One chance.

Witness the battle that will determine the fate of the world.


Book Excerpt

“You’ll never get away with this,” said the elven woman spitefully.

“I already have.”

The last thing Lysandra saw was a flash of black light from the orb atop her husband’s staff. Then, her soul was separated from her body.

As her body slumped to the floor, Zar Khan said, “You foolish woman. If only you and Cedric would realize nothing can stop me this time. I have ushered in a dawn of darkness, a darkness which shall never be pierced by the light of day again.”

Whipping his robes around, the mage turned and left.
