When Lyriasharin’s father, Kayos, a Grey God from the times before reckoning, returns to Myrthran after a thousand years, he is upset to find a young mortal Dark God in his domain. However, Kayos soon discovers that Bane is the rarest of all the gods. He is tar’merin: incorruptible, and, therefore, has the potential to wield the shadows to fight for the light.
Bane could free an enslaved light goddess if he is willing to take up the hated dark power again, but he doesn’t want to do this or to venture into the trackless and dangerous God Realm.
If he doesn’t, Lyriasharin’s daughter may die.
