Winner of the 2012 IndieReader Discovery Award for FantasyDarien Lauchlin has already lost everything. Now, the only thing he has left to lose is his soul. When his own brother sacrifices the woman he loves to unseal the Well of Tears, Darien finds himself the last surviving Sentinel capable of defending his world against the threat of the ancient Enemy. But Darien’s hands are tied; he has sworn the Oath of Harmony, vowing to never use his power in the taking of a life. As the Enemy masses in numbers never before seen, Darien is faced with an impossible decision: either remain steadfast to his Oath and watch everything he loves fall around him...or abandon his vow and become the most destructive force his world has ever seen. Accompanied by his acolyte and a priestess of Death, Darien embarks upon a perilous journey that will lead him down a path of utter self-destruction. In the name of duty, Darien will see crowns toppled, friends sacrificed and the land he loves desecrated. For there is a very thin line between duty and brutal inhumanity. In Darkmage, the themes of romance and tragedy combine to create a provocative epic saga sure to remain on the mind long after the tale has been told.
