"If it weren't for the Gift, he would never have known. If it weren't for the Gift, he would have been content. But Edmond Dantifori had the Gift--a power few could comprehend--and with this Gift a simple peasant boy was about to change the world."

It is a time of Chaos--a time of famine and disease and war worse than anyone can remember. And yet, even in the midst of such hopelessness, a peasant boy has glimpsed a future far different than the creeping pestilence outside his door.

In strange dreams and baffling visions, young Edmond has seen himself as both warrior and savior, fulfilling a great destiny in which he will ultimately deliver his people from darkness to Light.

Scoffed at by his own family and relentlessly pursued by those who would use his powers for evil, Edmond must find the courage to face unimaginable dangers as he and his friends embark on one of the greatest quests of all time!
