Young Scyld Sheafson discovers that there is more to the story of the Stone King than has been told, and a dangerous group of cultists known as the Imberon are seeking to revive an ancient evil from millennia of slumber. Haunted by his recent past, and hunted by the Imberon, Scyld sets out to find redemption and purpose in his life.
