More than a thousand years ago the armies of the Arcosian Empire, led by Mornhavon the Black, crossed the great sea and tried to conquer the land of Sacoridia. In the course of that campaign, Hadriax el Fex, Mornhavon's honorable first lieutenant, had seen his commander sink slowly into madness and resort to terrible dark magic. In desperation, Hadriax had turned traitor, seeking help from the enemy-making contact with the First Rider of Sacoridia's Green Rider corps. Due to Hadriax's defection, Mornhavon had been captured, and his corrupted now-immortal spirit had been imprisoned in Blackveil Forest. But in the ten centuries since the war's end, knowledge of the working of magic had slowly disappeared from Sacoridia, due to the fear and prejudice of a people traumatized by the memory of the terrifying sorceries of Mornhavon's invading army. The spirit of Mornhavon, sensing the weakness in his prison wall, began to wake, seeking vengeance, and causing frightening aberrations throughout the land. Karigan Gladheon was now a seasoned Green Rider-an experienced member of the magical messenger corps of the king of Sacoridia. With the ghostly help of the First Rider, Karigan . had managed to transport the spirit of Mornhavon into the future, buying valuable time for her king and country. But how far in the future was Mornhavon now? A hundred years? Ten years? Only one year? There was no way to tell. And though Karigan and her fellow Riders scoured the land searching for lost magical documents, and members of Clan D'Yer camped at the wall hoping to uncover its lost secrets, they were unaware of a threat to their kingdom that lay far closer. For Hadriax was not the only Arcosian soldier who'd survived the Long War, and those other soldiers had not shared his remorse. Now, the descendants of those Arcosians were ready to reach out to claim the land their forebears had tried to conquer. And these vengeful enemies, hidden within the seemingly peaceful borders of Sacoridia, had spent generations honing the powers of dark magic-a force against which the Sacoridians no longer had any defense
