Among the Children of the Sky, command of the elements is the surest way to riches, influence and respect. Which is why young Keevan Stratagar, a wiry Outlander with no elemental gifts at all, spent his childhood dismissed by the powerful and feared by the ignorant.
As a child, leaving Keevan alive was an act of mercy the Council couldn't refuse. Though at constant war with the Outlanders, they didn't have the heart to take the life of an infant. But Keevan is a young man now. Powerful enemies are turning their attention his way. Even a single Outlander standing on their shores is one too many.
Battling for life, friends and loyalty, Keevan must uncover the hidden might behind his Outlander power. A strength he's overlooked his entire life. It will shake the city of Issamere to its core, where one misstep could bring the might of an entire civilization down on top of Keevan and all he holds dear.
