Daxon Ward turned his back on his legacy decades ago.
Destined to become one of the realm’s Guardians—a magickal subspecies with blood-deep resistance to all things magick—he was one of the few who understood their true mission.
After witnessing the murder of a werewolf family at their hands, Daxon turned his back on the Guardians without a second thought.
Now, as his younger brother is set to graduate and join the ranks of the realms’ supposed protectors, Daxon finds himself swallowing his hatred and traveling to the Guardian Training Academy.
Not long into what should have been a peaceful celebration, the academy comes under attack, and Daxon crosses paths with the realms’ most notorious assassin, a Sage with the reputation of leaving no survivors.
Faced with his own mortality, Daxon is forced to make a decision.
Does he leave the academy to defend itself? Or stay and fight beside those he walked away from?
