A murder in the night. A missing heart. A life hanging in the balance.
The Baron of Ravenford was murdered in the dead of night. Even worse, his heart had been removed. Though magic preserves his body, there's only a short window of time until he's gone forever. Now Glolindir and company must race against the clock to save their friend and patron.
Who murdered Baron Gryswold and why? Where did they take his heart? Was it an act of jealousy or is there a more sinister motive behind it all? On top of that, why are people suddenly disappearing from the town? Does it have anything to do with rumors of a Dunwynn occupation? Are there darker forces at work?
From the underside of Vermoorden to the catacombs beneath Ravenford itself, the youths face lethal assassins, creatures of the night, and an imminent invasion. Can they protect Ravenford and still find the Baron's heart in time?
