In this prequel novella, Izan learns what it means to lose everything and find his purpose -- to save those who can't save themselves. Leaving the sanctuary of Kala behind to become the Guardian he was meant to be, he infiltrates Aramil's growing army. Manipulating which city she takes next, Izan's plan to sabotage the conqueror is working perfectly... until his priorities aren't looking as solid as before. He's questioning his purpose -- save one girl or save himself.
