Instead, they'll be snared in a conspiracy, and left fighting for their lives...
Sirath is on the run. Erin wrestles with her faith. Dalathos seeks his place in a world that would otherwise shun him.
Against them is Molric, who has journeyed to the past to destroy it. He plots to assassinate the Emperor and arm his allies with the secret of explosives.
But there is a gathering of forces bigger than anyone realises. The decisions made here will decide not only the fate of an empire, but the future of humanity.
