Chapter Summary

It has been eleven years since the Battle of D’hassa was fought by Cymeria against Imperator Darien I of Aquilonia and ten years since the first Ceremony of Oaths was held on the site of the battle. Cymeria prepares for its largest and most important yearly Gathering to be held the week of the great battle. The Ceremony of Oaths always takes place on the 13th of September, the actual date of the battle. Old allies and new friends join the celebration while a dark menace lurks in the shadows.

After numerous attacks against various members of the ruling family by the mysterious Black Order Templars of Aquitaine, events finally come to a head on the last day of the ceremonies when an arcane attack is launched against the High Lord of Cymeria followed by a full scale assassination attempt and an engagement between the Black Order against High Lord Commander Virdaín of Aquitaine and the Cymeria Guard, those involved are left with more questions than answers. Was it all only prompted by the alleged opening of a book containing prophecies that involve the ruling family of Cymeria or is there something deeper and considerably darker at work?

As High Lord Mikhael Stormdanovich and his companions try to make sense of it all, another threat is revealed. This time it involves Mikhael's small son, Vasily.
