In this, the second volume in his series, T.P. Johnson continues Lord Gabriel's quest to restore his realm after millions perished in the cruel Belloran attacks against his people. He has learned nothing of the fate of the king and queen, nor of the members of the royal court. He is forced to assume he alone must restore the land. After moving across the land with quiet determination, Gabriel and his troupe enter the dark domain of the Forest Tenebris seeking safety from the pursuing Bellorans. When Gabriel and Aylin become separated, she is apprehended by Borra, their cruel enemy from the Continentem Bellor. Her capture results in Gabriel setting out to free her from the clutches of his evil adversary, knowing he must implement his plans for restoral before Borra can bring further ruin upon his people.
