David’s luck has brought him from starship deckhand to the rank of knight. But there is more to knighthood than armor and swordplay - honor makes often lethal demands of those who would bear that title.

But the enemy isn’t always the obvious one, and the deadliest foe is closer than he knows.

For Ryan Blackwell, going to college at Northshield University was never, ever boring. That’s because Ryan can see something most people cannot – the magical nexus which lies at the heart of the campus. After nearly being blown to bits facing a deadly apparition in October, Ryan was hoping to settle into catching up on schoolwork.
But in surviving, Ryan found his magic had grown in strength. The new power was exhilarating – and frightening.
Ryan is about to get a lesson in the use of power, and in humility, and why power never, ever comes without responsibility. Because Northshield isn’t a safe place, even at the best of times. And for someone uncertain of their power and skills, the place can be deadly.
Kara never wanted to be the center of attention and had no delusions about being a hero. Space service was quiet, peaceful - even relaxing most of the time. But all that changed with the arrival in Earth's system of their new Cymtarran allies and the destructive forces of the Skree. Now Kara is being asked to step into a role she's not sure she can handle.
Aeron watched his planet destroyed by the Skree. Helpless, his ship fled the scene with a crew as badly damaged as their ship. They'd hoped to find respite from the Skree, but the monstrous things followed them and the battle has begun anew. Aeron is a warrior first and foremost. Nothing matters more to him than stopping the Skree.
One mission will bring these two together and test them like nothing before.
