In the darkest time of the Dark Age, as barbarians raid across the broken Roman Empire at will and the earth itself turns on human civilization, a young man comes of age when his parents are murdered. Javor’s search for revenge brings him an ancient heirloom of great power: a blade that can cut through dragon hide.
Rejected by his people, Javor heads for the center of civilization: Constantinople. On the way, he rescues a beautiful young woman and cannot help falling in love. But Danisa has her own agenda.
