Deimos, the evil sage who dares to defy Baruch, Creator of Realms, comes to claim his brain-child, who he views as his crowning achievement. Jacque, seed of the races, but not born of a woman, was conceived in the sage’s secret chambers, beget in a crystal phial, nurtured to birth in the sac of an aborted goat. As Jacque learns of his otherworldly beginnings, he must come to grips with his dual identity, the realization that his mother died as a result of this diabolical scheme, and that his destiny has been carved out for him. Will his allegiance remain with Baruch to see him through or will Deimos, with all his powers of darkness succeed in winning him over?
The sage’s monstrous plan has come full circle. Jacque is now grown and Deimos has come to claim him for the diabolical training concocted in the sage’s malevolent brain. Training for what? And how will the plan be thwarted? With magic-like powers given to him by lords of darkness, Deimos appears invincible.
Lords, sages, creatures unheard of but common to the realm add excitement, drama, deceit, and at times horror and dread!
A missing chalice engraved with the name “Gladhaven” reappears, revealing one more piece to the puzzle, yet at the same time deepening the mystery. Deimos will not be satisfied with the conquest of the realm of Areondra – his schemes encompass much, much more, and once he has control of his brain-child, he will accomplish his vile mission.
