Je'Rol is a man destined to die. Each day is a blessing and a curse on a world where he and those like him are feared and hunted. Like all half-blood demonlords, he is prone to blood rages in which he loses his humanity a little more each time. He can only delay the inevitable end when he will lose himself forever.
Before that happens, he hopes to find peace, but his quest for a legendary talisman to control the demon inside has far-reaching implications for the world of Derandria. Sought by demonlords to maintain their rule of the world and by humans longing to dethrone their demonlord masters, the Obelisk of Mai'Kari has the power to ignite a war. Je'Rol's final days will determine the fate of a world.
