The gods that once held control over human existence are in trouble.  New gods are challenging the power of the high god, Torval, for rule of the world.  New religions are giving power to these brash interloping young gods, and the only way to stop them lies with the five bones of the Vektia Dragons—for these bones hold the primordial power of creation and destruction.  The hope of the Vindrasi lies in finding the dragon bones before the followers of the new god Aelon can use them to redefine existence.  But the Vindrasi gods have a traitor in their midst…
 
In the land of mortals, Raegar, a Vindraisi turned Aelon warrior-priest, searches for the spirit bones.  Torval has a champion as well—Skylan Ivorson, sea-raider and high chief of the Vindrasi clans, cousin and sworn enemy to Raegar.  But Skylan and his people are captives in Sinaria, where they must fight for survival. The fates of men and gods and are rushing headlong to destruction. Skylan can stop the calamity, but only if he discovers the secret of the dragon.

Chapter1

BOOK ONE

The Vindrasi believe that every person has his own wyrd, as does every god. The wyrds of men and gods are intertwined, often to the detriment of man, for the gods are all-seeing, whereas man is blind. But sometimes the gods discover that foresight is a curse, not a blessing. For though a god may believe he is sure of the future of creation, no god can ever be truly confident that what he sees will come to pass, for no god can dictate the actions of men.

For men are free to choose. And thus men may unwittingly unravel the plans of the gods.
