‘Fast-flowing, spectacular
and entertaining fantasy.
A honey-trap for readers,
impossible to put down’
Librairie Mollat

Jal is not only a thief, but also a deserter. Pursued by his former fellow soldiers, he escapes death by a hair.

He is rescued by a woman who asks in exchange that he swear to defend her village against the conquering army he has just betrayed. An army led by the most powerful of the warrior-mages.

Although at first Jal has no intention of honouring his promise, the discovery of this valley miraculously spared by the war calls to mind the land of peace he has been seeking ever since he abandoned his life as a soldier.

Soon, violent nightmares are disturbing the young soldier’s sleep, dredging up the memories of twelve hitherto forgotten years of his life, and with them, some unexpected abilities… His oath might just allow him to discover who he really is.
