The enemy desires three things as one: to steal the Symbol, to kill the Seer, and to destroy Thalorion.


Years after Thalorion survives a terrible war, a young carpenter, William Ore, finds himself the pupil of a legendary general. At first his reoccurring dreams seem to be nothing but merely coincidence; however, one life-altering vision during a training session proves otherwise. When William receives a premonition of the accursed Semion armies returning, his normal life is plunged into a quest to gather allies for the coming war. He and Queen Elona must face sudden ambushes, battles and betrayals that will forge a bond between them… but will they succeed in rallying the world to their cause? As dark forces gather and the god-king, Simoria, rises from his shadowy grave to seek vengeance on the Trinomian world, only one person stands in the way of such immense darkness: the Chosen Seer.
