The ancient Dark Faith was destroyed long ago. Or so they thought... Morumus was but a boy when the murderous shadow of the Dark Faith fell upon his family. Now a devout monk, Morumus has been given the task of his life: translate Holy Writ into the language of those who practice the Dark Faith. His translation could be a great, sweeping sword, used to break its power!
However, as Morumus and two fellow monks begin the task, dark currents drag them toward a dangerous conspiracy. Shadows from his past appear - in his sleep, on a lonely road, even on the cover of an old book. Coincidence? Or something more sinister? Can Morumus find the secret to vanquish the Dark Faith? Or will he once more lose everything - even his life?
"Jeremiah Montgomery packs the first installment in his debut series full of adventure, dread, and dark conspiracy [and] will delight fans of fantasy and medieval history buffs alike, keeping them up way past bedtime."?
