Upon the shores of the Laughley Sea, in the shadows of the jagged Northland Mountains and not so far south as the blistering Aronee Desert, there exists a land of lush forests and golden plains. This land is known as Lynsid, a once great nation that has suffered through more than a decade of demoralizing wars. The brothers Tevanon and Kensic were born to Lynsid like their parents and grandparents before them. They know no other life and have never been outside the borders of their homeland. Lynsid, however, is on the verge of collapse and rumors of a Vlagen invasion spur a mass migration. At first, the brothers have no intention of leaving their birthplace, but soon enough they have no choice and find themselves on the trail to a land called Turlot where their Great Uncle Welksley resides.

At just thirteen-years-old, Tevanon is already highly skilled in swordsmanship, and his nine-year-old brother Kensic is mentally gifted. These attributes are useful, but the journey to Turlot will test not only their brawn and brains, but also their faith and tactfulness. The brothers learn quickly the world is filled with endless adversity. Treachery is in plain sight, evil sorcery is silently stirring, and an immortal army is lying in wait! If the brothers wish to survive, they must be vigilant, they must be brave, and they must believe in themselves.


Deep within the haunted caverns of Dezvil, well beyond the jurisdiction of men, there was said to be the sacred place of the sorcerers who ruled the land thousands of years ago. No living person dared journey to this place, not without the protection of a powerful spell cast by a powerful sorcerer. But all of the powerful sorcerers had vanished, either killed or too old to live, and not one of them had yet found the pathway back to the living. Or so was thought, until now. 
He wore a heavy black robe wrapped with yellow streaks from the left side and across the lower half of the front. A hood covered his head and shadowed his eyes revealing only his steep nose and stern lips. His chin was clean-shaven and square, and he stood tall and broad with his arms held outward like the wings of an eagle soaring across the sky. In his left hand, he held a stone, a plain gray stone, circular and smooth. In his right hand, he held a sheet of paper, thin transparent paper with symbols written along the edges. He slowly brought his hands together and wrapped the stone with the paper. Then he let it fall to the rocky floor of the cavern. 
Smoke swirled upward and an image appeared. It was a castle, yet more of a fortress, built in the midst of an endless valley. Three massive walls surrounded the castle and inside each wall there was a thriving city filled with homes, markets, farms and every service imaginable. Because of its unique design, the Fortress of Ker was also known as Three Cities, and in the event of an attack, Three Cities could sustain its population for months if not years without the worry of starvation or lack of supplies. A siege upon this fortress was difficult, both because of its self-sufficiency and because of the three massive walls defending it. Many armies had tried to conquer Three Cities, but none had been successful during the five hundred years of its existence.
