And in case you missed book 1…

12,000 BC – Europe

After crossing the vast steppe, passing through the valley was a means to an end for the Broad-Horn Tribe as they sought new lands beyond. Their shaman says the Gods & the mightiest of them, the Sun God, has blessed their travel and they will find better lands on the other side of the mountains.

Within the valley stands an altar to the Sun God and at its base, a macabre sacrifice. Despite the shaman’s desires to leave the altar, one of the Tribe destroys the ‘heresy’ to their benevolent God. The crime does not go unnoticed by the valley’s inhabitants.

Devout worshipers of the Sun and the blessings it grants them; the SunChasers will avenge the attack upon their sacred site. They will see the invaders driven out, but one seeks the resurrection of a powerful evil their holy man swore he would never revive.

Tensions arise in the Broad-Horn Tribe from the actions of the selfish and threat of attack by the SunChasers. Cooler and curious heads seek an understanding, while they are two different people, they share the same God.

If peace cannot be found, the call to summon the soulless darkness that once turned the soil crimson may be answered.
