"He felt strange. He didn’t open his eyes but he could feel every part of his body, and they were all changing. His muscles, every fiber of them, were growing. Blood ran through his veins in an intoxicating dance. His heart beat so strongly he couldn’t believe it. He could feel it pumping the blood through his body, like a drum beating the cadence of the dance. His bones felt like iron and his mind was light, his thoughts fast and nimble, like a deer dashing through the woods."
The King of Ortis has marched to war with his entire army, leaving the people of his kingdom unprotected. Into this void comes Lorik, battle axe in hand, leading a small group of volunteers from the southern marshlands. They travel north to help tide the invasion by the Norsik raiders who come to kill, pillage, and take slaves. But it will take more than brute strength and a sound strategy to turn back the massive tribes of raiders, and the danger will threaten not only Lorik but his most dearly loved friends as well. As magic awakens in the Five Kingdoms, Lorik's world teeters on the brink of disaster and unless Lorik finds his purpose and fulfills his destiny, all will be lost.
