Sidge knows the rituals of the Stormblade Temple in meticulous detail. He has mastered every word and phrase of the twelve thousand mantras. Sworn to protect mankind, he is a model acolyte in every way. Every way except one.
He isn't human.
Sidge has never known his own people, an insectoid race more often used for menial labor than meditation. Adopted by an eccentric human mentor, the temple is his entire life. Yet for the other acolytes, his presence is an affront to their vigil against an ancient foe who once enslaved mankind.
Dark omens follow Sidge on his first pilgrimage. The Wisdom of the mighty storm dragon, Vasheru, seeks a new vessel to lead the temple and the most likely candidate sees Sidge as an abomination. He and his mentor begin a desperate attempt to compete for the title. But an encounter with a streetwise woman named Kaaliya sets off a chain of events millennia in the making which will reshape Sidge’s destiny – and the course of an entire age.
His first journey outside the temple walls will not only test Sidge’s faith but his sense of identity as he races to ensure his beloved temple does not fall into the wrong hands.
