What started as a seemingly innocent quest for the truth behind a past forgotten, soon becomes a fight for survival orchestrated by a former deity.
Many years ago the Hoi Hepta Sophoi sealed away the powers of the magnificent god Night, unaware that their actions would eventually lead to the destruction of the world as they knew it. Restrained within seven magical tomes known as the Grimoire, Night’s powers were scattered throughout the world, and slowly reclaimed until all but one remains lost; but unlike his powers, which were restored, Hectarian magic, the price of sealing him, remains lost. But even this missing tome is not enough to prevent him from exacting his revenge. His sole desire is to release a force upon the world so devastating that its appearance normally marks the end of a God’s rule and the creation of a new cycle.
It is said that the past always returns to haunt you. Yet some forgotten pasts have whispered names and a debt for collection. Dangerous curiosities stir a hidden darkness, one that patiently waits to seize control.
Within the layers of a divine game the boundaries of reality change as ancient creatures once more resurface from their slumber and beings that should dwell only within Darrienia threaten to pierce the veil to the waking world.
Darkness has a way of masking that which would otherwise be seen and the god Night, orchestrator of this peril, is a master of such distortion. Nothing is ever as it seems, especially when every action is gently influenced to unlock the unimaginable terror as he guides those chosen to his true ambition. Their actions rousing something far older and more dangerous than the threat they first perceived, its awakening would herald the end and beginning of all.
Will they discover the truth in time? Or will those who should be heroes become nothing more than the pawns of evil?
