Draken's legacy as a gladiator is etched in the scars of his past—a past he's desperate to leave behind. When his family vanishes, it's more than his heart can bear. Seeking absolution, he exchanges the roar of the arena for the silence of the monastery, vowing to lay down his arms forever.
Fate, however, has a different plan. As danger descends upon the unsuspecting monks and the family he longs to reclaim, Draken is faced with a harrowing decision. The vow of peace is powerful, but the duty to protect is paramount. With the lives of the innocent in the balance, he grasps the hilt of his sword once again, standing as the only line of defense.
