Strange and legendary Dremlock Kingdom is facing destruction from both within and beyond its stone walls in the form of goblins--creatures spawned by evil that come in all shapes and sizes--and the Deep Shadow, a hungry and spreading force of dark sorcery that infects people with madness.
To save their kingdom, the knights recruit a lonely and isolated boy named Lannon who lives in a wooded valley with his crazy father, who bears a dark illness of the soul, and his foul-tempered mother. Lannon is sought out because he possesses a rare power called the Eye of Divinity. The knights need Lannon's gift to see through the fog of evil that shrouds Dremlock Kingdom and give them the advantage they need to turn the tables on their ancient foe.
With the help of his friends, Lannon tries desperately to unlock the Eye of Divinity in time to save Dremlock Kingdom from otherwise certain doom. With the Deep Shadow creeping around the kingdom and infecting hearts and minds, Lannon isn't sure if anyone in Dremlock can even be trusted. Lannon finds himself, and his fellow squires, caught in a web of mystery and magic in a kingdom where anything can happen.
How does a man cope with the grim burden of harboring a demon? And what if it was the most powerful demon of all--an ancient magical fiend known as Credesar who once ravaged the land and forced his will onto humanity?
A young sorcerer named Kelden is faced with this reality. With Credesar lurking within Kelden's soul, waiting to break free and possibly end his life, he finds himself in a struggle just to retain his sanity. To make matters worse, his masters--the tower seers--are sending him off on a long and perilous quest to destroy the demon.
But nothing is what it seems. Someone wants Kelden dead for reasons of their own, and danger lurks at every turn in a land ravaged by ethereal beasts. Soon Kelden finds himself caught in a web of mystery with scheming seers, and dark entities from the hungry realm of Tharnin, making war upon each other.
Who can Kelden turn to when terrible forces seem stacked against him on all sides and Credesar seems intent on consuming his existence from within? The answer comes as a surprise to all.
