Thayne Highborn is a winged knight of Sylaros, a protector of the peace in the savage world of Xil. Married to a beautiful Sagemaster and blessed with a healthy child growing into his flight feathers, Thayne’s life and career are on the rise.
But when a mysterious huntress leads him on a chase through the gloomy halls and unlit backways of Avionis Spire, Thayne unwittingly finds himself in a position to save the king’s infant daughter. Caught in a tangled web of interwoven fates, Thayne’s courageous act elevates him to hero, while those he loves are thrown into dire peril. Now he must choose between the king he is sworn to obey, and the family he is sworn to defend—with the lives of his wife and son hanging in the balance.
