Falkier Inalumin has spent the past six years imprisoned by the king whom he had served under as a scribe. He hadn’t attempted to escape even when the opportunity arose until one night when a stranger comes to break him out of prison at knifepoint.
After his escape, he is granted the power of the Dragon Sword, a weapon imbued with the power of one of the Ancients who created the world. He is also tasked with assembling a suit of armor imbued by the rest of the Ancients so that he may kill Rakar Gorxand, a man who had been granted a set of armor by the Ancients which was corrupted by the evil he was chosen to eliminate.
On this first leg of Falkier’s journey, he becomes a mercenary, learns a sword style which allows him to fight without sight, and faces off against a man with the power to weave the fabric of the universe.
