The final quest to level the planets in the Maylin Fold is now upon Aster Wood. He's got a backpack full of gold and a group of men sworn to travel beside him until the task is done. But not everyone in the group is what they seem.
From the outset, the cowardice of men takes hold and threatens to derail the attempt to take the planets back from the grip of the Corentin. Now, Aster must try to lead the group, to stay strong until the last of the planets is leveled and the path toward balance is clear.
When the core of each planet is finally returned, though, a greater, much more dangerous battle will remain. The Corentin waits in his tower, ever watchful, as the hunters approach.
