Still healing from the devastation of a civil war some fourteen years earlier, the country of Onastria now faces an even greater threat -- The Tome of Revelations -- fabled decoder of the dead language of the Ancients. Having destroyed themselves, the Ancients left behind mysterious ruins and technologically-advanced machinery, the likes of which would grant the possessor of the Tome unstoppable power. When the High Priestess of Onastria foresees the Tome falling into the hands of an evil cult, she must call upon the greatest hero of the civil war: Ku-Jik. Now a recluse, Ku-Jik is living incognito as a lighthouse keeper on the tiny island of PenGaern. A widower and father of a teenage daughter, will he jeopardize the peace he has finally attained in order to save a country he's saved once before, and at great personal loss?
