Alidra is still a child when her simple life as a Benari commoner is turned upside down by the news that she may have a role in a prophesy that is key to recovering a Holy Weapon – the Sword of Rindalam the Lawgiver – from the hands of Amara, the goddess of chaos.

But prophecy is tricky and as she secretly trains for her task Alidra also comes to understand the complexity of the one she is part of. Which leads her to a question she dare not ask aloud.

Or maybe, just maybe those are the same thing…
