During the dark years after the War of Souls, chaos threatens the once-mighty empire of Solamnia. Goblins raid even fortified cities, and bandits rule great sections of the countryside. The ruling dukes, lords, and knights bicker and backstab. Through this chaos, James Markham, aided by his steadfast dwarven companion and a beautiful white-robed wizard, wields his flaming sword to uphold the principles on which Solamnia was founded.
A new Solamnic Empire rises from the ashes of war. It is ruled by one man: a knight, a warrior, a virtual dictator driven by ambitions that trample the lives of all who aid them. An old enemy, mightier than ever, rises to challenge him. And there are other dangers - mortal and magical - closer to home. The man who would be emperor must face the gravest threats in his long and violent life.
