It is a decision he soon regrets for he finds himself the target of a manhunt by the forces of the merciless Lord Sigeberht. But, instead of saving himself, why is Nerian risking his life to return the object?

Held captive within the tyrant's castle, Naomi, the Crook's Guardian, awaits her opportunity to escape. As Lord Sigeberht fails in his attempts to obtain the object, external forces take control of his mind, driving him blindly towards disaster.  

While Nerian desperately seeks Naomi, unknown to him the Keeper of the Gauntlet also is making his way towards her. What links the Gauntlet and the Crook and why are the games played by Naomi in her childhood important? Released from confinement, Shadows of evil begin to spread across the land. What is the significance of Gabrielle, the Keeper's kidnapped daughter? As a weapon against the forces of evil, the innocence of a child should never be underestimated.
