Some shadows can swallow you whole.
Aelwyd's power is formidable, battle-honed into a fearsome warrior who never falters in the face of the enemy, her word is law for all who hear it. She's spent a hundred years preparing to face the nightmare that nearly destroyed her, and when she sees the signs of her enemy's return, she knows she must stop him, or die trying.
Some shadows lurk in nightmares.
Orphaned Dalbran knows only the arts of battle and survival. His days are filled with pain and exhaustion, and his nights - once his only source of peace - are now plagued with terrors that strike as soon as his eyes close. But nightmares are no threat...so long as they remain only nightmares.
