'A timeless piece of storytelling' - TES
In a fortress-monastery on an island live the legendary warriors of the Nomana. It is a time of war and the mighty Orlan army marches to destroy the Nomana. But the Nomana are indestructible, aren't they?
Seeker, Morning Star and the Wildman must all choose whether to continue serving the Nomana. Their paths will lead them in very different directions. Seeker, when tested to his limits, discovers he is the strongest warrior. Morning Star faces turmoil - she is in love with someone who doesn't love her. And the Wildman decides to rebel and plans a terrifying escape from the Nomana. The three must fight for all they know at a time when everything they know is changing . . .
