About the Book

The balance of dark and light is again threatened in Ersetu. The land of Aurderia is at the center of the struggle between the forces aligned with the dark, and the rest of the world. Shuran, a young man grown from elemental magic powers beyond his comprehension, faces his sister who is consumed by darkness. With his growing powers, Shuran travels the realms gathering allies and building his Zidu’Si, a collective of the races of man who serve the Shin’Ar. As the Shin’Ar, Shuran has been thrust into the position as “Watcher of the Lands“, an ancient title that goes back to the Telukukal, the first people of Ersetu.

Things are moving fast…

Shuran’s father is missing and his best friend, Bastien, has been possessed. Shuran fights against the darkness of the Order of Chaos in an effort to find a way to balance the Essence of Ersetu. In Durangug, Shuran and the Zidu’Si gather to gain knowledge and understanding of their part in this prophecy. While the Zidu’Si research to locate the three remaining races of man, Shuran explores a hidden chamber within the Vault. Witches and dark wizards align with chaos and some ancient enemies change sides in a quest for survival.
