After many years of hardship and separation, Halea has become Varg’s mate, and life should be perfect, but it isn’t. She can’t escape the feeling that the Chaos Dimension will someday return, and with Lord Anshar gone, who will protect them? Though no longer a priestess, she cannot ignore the call of the goddess that is warning her of the storm ahead.

Varg’s worst nightmare may become a reality when the Swordmaster Crow foretells of Halea’s death. Together they must find a way to defeat the Dragon Lord before he summons another convergence that will bring an end to their world.
