Owyn is a ranger's apprentice. Zara is a mage's ward. Both hold the fate of the world in their hands.

The Arc of Radiance has stood for a thousand years, protecting what's left of the world from an ancient evil. But when demons begin to break through the magical barrier, Owyn and Zara become involved in a war that has lasted millennia.

If they can convince their people that the threat is real, then perhaps they can survive. If not, then the Eleven Hells will be unleashed upon the world of men...
