Merglan has the source of true magic within reach. Evils not seen in Kartania for hundreds of years wreak havoc on the forces of Westland. The last of the dragonriders must fight for Kartania’s freedom or be extinguished.
After Anders learns of Merglan and his dragon’s violent takeover of the elf capital, he is faced with the burden of leading the allied forces to their last stand. The only problem is, he doesn’t know where his allies are, or if they’re even still alive. The elf army is divided and in ruin, the dwarfs have been driven from their city under the mountain, and the humans are scattered across their kingdoms, all struggling to stay alive. Merglan could attack Anders, his dragon, and their small army at any moment.
With Anders attempting to juggle his role in the prophecy, the prospect of becoming king, and the future of the allied nations, he struggles to stay one step ahead of Merglan. Knowing the allied armies are scattered and he is outmatched in his skills as dragonrider, Anders and the leaders of the Westland Revolutionary Army form a plan. Knowing the fate of Kartania will be decided with his life, Anders will need help during this last stand. Can he find his allies and bring them together? Or will he and the forces of Westland be overwhelmed by Merglan and his evil army? Will the rise of the dragonriders be enough to fulfill the prophecy?
