The forces of darkness have discovered a mystic key they believe will unshackle the demons Christ chained to the bottomless pit. Zeraktalis the Dark Sorcerer leads the quest to unleash them. He surmises the wrathful demons will annihilate mankind - causing Christ to abandon the Earth thus freeing all evil from the judgement of God. The Paladin Navarro Silvinton, the Silver Elf Prince Zakili Terishot, and the Baron's daughter Candace Veldercrantz face an uphill battle to unite Avundar's baronies against the imminent onslaught while wrestling with personal struggles of their own. With demonic fiends, a powerful sorcerer, mighty giants, and ravenous monsters opposing them, the odds seem insurmountable. But with God, all things are possible. Intrigue, an Assassin Warlord and his army, a fictitious curse, and a budding romance between Navarro and Candace muddle the already complicated events. The friends press through deceit and prejudice, hoping to overcome a threat they can only defeat by the power of Jesus Christ.
