Legend has it that Paxon Leah
is descended from the royals and warriors who once ruled the Highlands and
waged war with magical weapons. But those kings, queens, and heroes are long
gone, and there is nothing enchanted about the antique sword that hangs above
Paxon’s fireplace. Running his family’s modest shipping business, Paxon leads a
quiet life—until extraordinary circumstances overturn his simple world—and
rewrite his destiny.
When his brash young sister
is abducted by a menacing stranger, Paxon races to her rescue with the only
weapon he can find. And in a harrowing duel, he is stunned to discover powerful
magic unleashed within him—and within his ancestors’ ancient blade. But his
formidable new ability is dangerous in untrained hands, and Paxon must master
it quickly because his nearly fatal clash with the dark sorcerer Arcannen won’t
be his last. Leaving behind home and hearth, he journeys to the keep of the
fabled Druid order to learn the secrets of magic and earn the right to become
their sworn protector.
But treachery is afoot deep
in the Druids’ ranks. And the blackest of sorcery is twisting a helpless
innocent into a murderous agent of evil. To halt an insidious plot that
threatens not only the Druid order but all the Four Lands, Paxon Leah must
summon the profound magic in his blood and the legendary mettle of his elders
in the battle fate has chosen him to fight. Download and start listening now!
