Silver, they call it, the light of the full moon: celestial magic that changes men into beasts and calls the dead from their graves...and young men to their destinies. Billy Cole is the son of legendary folk hero Ian the Black. He should be marching to war, battling dragons, and rescuing fair maidens. Unfortunately for him, the war is long over, the last dragon was slain by the Dread Duke, and all the girls in Redfield are either several years younger than him or already married. Billy is 16 springs old and ready for a life of valor and excitement.

Evil has risen from Blood Marsh. Redfield needs a hero. Billy Cole is the son of legendary adventurer Ian the Black. And although he has the brass to take on the enemy alone, he's smart enough to know better. Instead, he takes the name Wil Thunderstrike, straps on the sword of Trevor the Red, and journeys north to find help.
Wil arrives in the shadowy city of Fellwater in search of his prey, the bandit Mad Dog McCray. And heroes to save Redfield, of course. But it's easy to get distracted in a place like Fellwater. Gambling on boxing matches and chasing a flirtatious pickpocket prove to be dangerous entertainment. Soon he's making more enemies than friends.
Billy Cole - formerly Wil Thunderstrike, now the warrior Lockheed - has started down a new heroic career path as one of Leon Shimmerskin's champions. But the tales of the Colors Three never prepared him for the Silver Lion's particular brand of justice. The path of the traveling hero, it seems, is darker than he'd imagined.
