Gram lives in the long shadow cast by his father, the late-hero, Dorian Thornbear. Struggling to find his place in a world where politics and wizardry appear to have replaced the need for men of might and main, he must make his own mark. Trapped within the seemingly safe confines of Castle Cameron, Gram faces both love and tragedy. His choices will define not only himself, but serve to remind others of his family’s legacy, and the reason only a fool threatens those a Thornbear protects.

The topic of their father was one of great curiosity for his sister. She was too young to remember him, or to suffer the same sadness that he and their mother did. He was careful never to let her see how painful such questions were, though, for fear she might stop asking. “He would,” was as much as he could say before his throat closed, so he hugged her
