Ean Sangrave, a young Healer's apprentice in the secluded village of Rottwealth, is the village pariah. Doing his best to live up to the reputation, he often finds himself in bad situations. When the village is threatened by a seemingly unbeatable monster that makes its home in the town's mine, Ean finds himself dragged along in a quest to find a way to battle this new threat. Getting his wish to finally leave the village, even if not in the way he wants, Ean discovers a world much larger and more complicated then he ever could have imagined.

 

Unfortunately, he also carries a secret that the majority of the world would rather did not exist. For Ean has a connection to the Abyss, a place created by a dark god that is full of beasts and monsters. Monsters that Ean is slowly learning how to summon into his own world. But with a connection to a taboo god and a power he barely understands, can Ean fit into the world outside of his secluded village? Or will the stigma that has been placed on him since birth follow him the rest of his life.

Ean Sangrave’s friends are gone.

At least, his human ones are.

 

Zin, as always, is by his side. Years of advice and getting Ean out of trouble has earned him the title of Ean’s closest friend, Joining them now is Azalea the Yulari, another creature from the Abyss that feeds off the emotions of her victims to the point of death. Summoned in a moment of jealousy, Azalea would have killed Ean’s friends if he had not stopped her in time. So how do Bran and Jaslen pay him back for saving their lives? By running off with all of their supplies, leaving Ean with his imp and a fragile alliance with an alluring but deadly Yulari.

 

Ean is now at a crossroads. Does he continue the quest originally placed on him and his friends to find a way to save Rottwealth from the monster that has taken over the mine? Or does he follow the advice of his companions from the Abyss and learn to control his growing power? The Healer’s apprentice inside of him hopes to somehow do both.

 

Regardless of which quest he ultimately decides to follow, its Ean’s inner turmoil that worries him the most. The dark power of the Abyss is spreading through his body at an alarming rate. The tattoos that represent the power continue to grow across his body while dark dreams invade his mind. Can he hold off the darkness growing inside of him, or will Ean give in to the power and become the tyrant he has feared?

Power. Influence. Command.

Ean Sangrave never thought he would have any of those things, but what a difference a year makes. Now, he’s practically king of the abandoned mine on the edge of Rottwealth, surrounded by loyal creatures from the Abyss who live to carry out his every whim. Then there are his closest friends, Zin and Azalea, his only friends, always ready and willing to bring him back to reality. They want what’s best for Ean but don’t trust in his ability to plan for the future. Their constant bickering over what they think is best has another thorn in Ean’s side.   

After a failed attempt to ease the tensions between the citizens of Rottwealth and Ean’s new command of the mine, a visitor arrives with an interesting message from an unexpected source. The knowledge Ean seeks about the origins of his powers lies in the Deadlands, a place that has already taken Ean’s life once before. Should he risk all that he has worked for, to journey through mysterious lands where only fools dare to tread, in search of answers he might not want to know?

An old enemy never forgets . . .

 

The last person Ean Sangrave expects to see on his return home from the Deadlands is the magician, Sadiek Nidot. Two years ago he killed Ean and stripped the lovely Azalea of her wings. Upon seeing his murderer, Ean can’t decide if he fears using his own dark power more than he thirsts for revenge. The brief moment of indecision allows the crafty Sadiek to slip through Ean's fingers, but not before he gleefully reveals that Rottwealth, Ean's hometown, will soon be destroyed.

 

Ean speeds to the land of his birth and rebirth on a mission to save it. All the while, he’s being pursued by bounty hunters and religious zealots sent by temple leaders who see him as a threat to the common good. Upon arriving at the land of his birth, despite all he has accomplished during his travels, he learns some things never change. The villagers who treated him so badly as a boy still don’t respect him. Complicating matters further, Sadiek’s evil influence has reached the hearts and minds of the people, hardening them against him. As Ean's frustration with them mounts, the darkness within himself grows stronger. Will he continue to defend the people or become their greatest enemy as everyone fears?
