It’s always good to know who you are, but sometimes that’s a wee bit difficult.

Kenhodan has no last name, because he has no past … or not one that he remembers, anyway.  What he does have are a lot of scars and a lot of skills, some exhilarating and some terrifying, and a purpose.  Now if he only knew where he’d gotten them and what that purpose was …

Wencit of Rum, the most powerful wizard in the world, knows the answers to Kenhodan’s questions, but he can’t or won’t share them with him.  Except to inform him that he’s a critical part of Wencit’s millennium-long battle to protect Norfressa from conquest by dark sorcery.

Bahzell Bahnakson, champion of Tomanak, doesn’t know those answers and the War God isn’t sharing them with him.  Except to inform Bahzell that the final confrontation with the Dark Lords of fallen Kontovar is about to begin, and that somehow Kenhodan is one of the keys to its final outcome.

It’s not easy to face the future when you can’t remember your own past, but if saving an entire world from evil sorcerers, demons, devils and dark gods was easy, anyone could do it.
