Rodrigo has won the throne of Caledon and mastered the Still’s magic. Now comes the real challenge: He must rule.
When Rodrigo took control of the mystical powers of the Still, he gained the knowledge of his forefathers. On the battlefield, the Still is a potent weapon and Rodrigo proves to be a gifted strategist. But the Still doesn’t make him perfect, and even the wisdom of generations of Caledonian rulers can’t prepare Rodrigo for what will come next. A sudden betrayal costs Rodrigo the life and companionship of the person he loves most. With the savage King Hriskil advancing on the north, hoping to seize Caledon, Rodrigo must press on toward an earth-shattering magical confrontation.
