A nation's elite warriors vanished. A throne in jeopardy on the heels of murder. War fanned by a shadowy cabal. And the five friends who can stop it, banished.
Accused of treason, veteran Kingsman Elohl seeks the truth of a betrayal that caused the Kingsmen to vanish a decade ago. Inked with the Blackmark and despised for it, Elohl must give everything to shatter a hidden sect that usurps the throne. A bloody war will be reaped in the shadows that will burn nations and bring kings to their knees.
