Azaran is a man without memory. Pulled from the ocean and put in chains, he remembers nothing of his past beyond his name...and the magical runes branded on his chest that make him faster and stronger then ordinary men.
Desperate and confused, he is thrust into a world where the strong prey upon the weak, where vile corsairs plunder the helpless, while hidden masters plot and intrigue to drive the world towards an apocalypse of blood and fire.
Joining forces with an exiled priest and a rebel leader, Azaran will lead a revolution against the brutal lord oppressing the Isle of Tereg. With a band of escaped slaves and freedom fighters at his back, he will charge into battle, headed to the edge of memory...where the darkness of his past awaits...
