As the evil surrounding Midnight and Adon grows more potent, their quest to defeat Bane and prove their innocence grows fraught with betrayals from both friends and enemies alike. Without anyone to trust, can Midnight and Adon find a way to clear their names and save the Realms from a terrible fate?
