Gale was only nine when he faced death for the first time. He was ambushed by one of the giant predators that roam the jungles of his homeland, Vindary.
This harsh life is a blessing compared to the stories from the Homelands, hundreds of miles away. Stories of a dark age, of endless war and terror. The jungle and it’s perils shield the people of Vindary from the carnage of war. At least, that’s what they believed.
In a single day, Vindary’s peace is shattered, its people trapped within their castle, besieged by a foreign king. With food and water dwindling, Gale’s only hope of saving his people is to sneak out of Vindary, into the fabled lands beyond, to plea for help.
For any normal man, this would be an impossible quest. But Gale is far from normal. When he’s gripped by rage, the laws of reality bend. He is a Runic, a remnant of a forgotten age.
