He died in one life trying to defeat the king. Can he succeed in another?
Thirteen-year-old Alannian is the Incarnation, the most recent in a lineage that has preserved harmony between humans, elves, and dwarves for millennia--ever since a powerful elf created the Incarnation Cycle. But King Fayavor believes the Incarnations have prevented humans from achieving true greatness, and he wants Alannian dead.
For most of his life, the elves had kept Alannian’s identity a secret from him, but no longer. As Alannian leaves his home, a traitor reveals his identity to the king’s key enforcer and Alannian’s uncle is killed. From freeing slaves to evading an entire Legion out for his blood, Alannian must learn to harness his increasing power as he seeks to find solace in his uncle’s death.
