Two heroes… Two magics… Two lands… One fate
He is the son of a chieftan, destined to lead.
She is the daughter of a songvari, fated to serve.
Together, they must discover the secrets of their heritage and be bonded as Sal Drengrs – Soul Warriors – to overcome an ancient darkness that threatens to destroy their worlds.
Hallad Avarson knows nothing of the realms beyond his village. The worlds, gods, magics, and the Shadow are only tales told on moonless nights. What he does know is that something has always been missing from his life.
Then, one evening, a mysterious warrior maiden appears in the Great Wood near his village. As their eyes meet, he knows–she is what fills that void. An immediate and unexplainable bond is formed. Even though she does not speak, he hears her voice in his head, and an overwhelming desire to protect her at all costs wells inside him. At the same moment they meet, Hallad’s little sister disappears into the Shadow. As his friends and village turn against the woman, blaming her for his sister’s disappearance, Hallad and the warrior maiden are forced to flee.
Now, Hallad is thrown headlong into the realms of magic, manipulations, and worst off, the Shadow, who hunts both him and the woman. Can Hallad save his sister from the clutches of an unknown foe, outsmart the trickery of the Shadow, and unravel the mysterious connection between him and the warrior maiden before the Shadow forces them apart?
Or will the Shadow stop Hallad from discovering the truth of his heritage, the danger that awaits their worlds, and the destiny he and the warrior woman he protects share?
