"Isak is a white eye, feared and despised in equal measure, desperate to escape a live of poverty and abuse. His prayers are answered by the Gods, who have marked him as the heir to Lord Bahl, the Lord of Farlan. But those who would be king are watching Isak as he is molded and shaped to fulfill prophecies he cannot possibly escape. The various factions vying for power are set to unleash their fury and Isak finds himself in the middle of a war he barely comprehends and wielding powers he may never be able to control."
