Tension mounts in the continuation of the BloodRunes Trilogy:
As Layna and Gryffon race to alert Treymayne about the impending danger of King Nathair's use of blood-magic, menacing evidence implies that the Sleeping God, Nuko, is waking. The two of them know that if he is awakened he will spread his dark curse upon the land and the outcome will be disastrous. But when they try to warn the council of these threats, controversy from a surprising foe hinders their efforts.
When shocking news of King Nathair's latest activities suddenly spurs the Treymayne council to heed their advice, it seems they might make some progress, but an attempted murder forces them to shift their focus to more personal issues and Gryffon finds that his allegiance is torn.
As the darkness grows stronger and the tense state of affairs between the two countries intensifies, Gryffon must abandon his efforts to stop the impending conflict to fight for something he values even more than his country...
