During the Dark Times, the Eridon Li Kari people are still recovering from the malign influence of the Masters; a formidable reptilian race who had enslaved them from for thousands of years before mysteriously vanishing. The Li Kari live in misery and superstition, shunning their natural abilities and fearing that one day the Old Ones will return.
Two boys – Kamrys and Ansharedan – are only four years apart in age, but as different as night and day. Kamrys has an affinity for animals and can’t even bring himself to throw stones at pilloried warlocks, while Ansharedan wants only to become a soldier and fight for the Great Serbidorn Empire.
After Invaders from the Serbidorn Empire force Kamrys to flee his native village of Tyrian Servar, he is rescued by a crippled Seer named Janerian. The boy learns that he will one day help all Eridon Li Kari people realise their true powers and unite. But before he can do this he will have to fight the chosen of Necronis the Unmaker – the Nightbringer.
While exploring local mountain caves with his friends, Ansharedan had fallen down a shaft into a hidden cave, where he accidentally opened a portal to the Dark God’s realm. Necronis dominated the boy's body and soul and began training him to rule. As soon as Ansharedan was strong enough, he travelled to Sebora, capital of the Serbidorn Empire.
On his way to confront Ansharedan, Kamrys meets the love of his life; the warrior-princess Keriana. She teaches him to use a sword while he trains her in the psionic arts. They are stronger together, united by passion, but will they be powerful enough to defeat Ansharedan? Necronis’ Nightbringer has since become Archprelate of the Seboran Church, beloved by the empire, with an entire army of trained priests and soldiers at his command.
