Consumed by grief and haunted by nightmares, Davyn has given up on himself and his friends. But he cannot deny his destiny for long.
Shemnara rekindles Davyn’s hope with a new vision. If Davyn can enlist the help of the dreaded Dragon Knight, Nearra may survive. Only Oddvar, the shifty Theiwar, has ever entered the Knight's home and lived to tell the tale. But even a Theiwar's secrets can be bought, for the right price. Soon, with old friends, new allies, and Oddvar by his side, Davyn enters the cursed keep. Nearra's fate rests in his hands. And all he has to do is make it out . . . alive. [from publisher's web site]
