With his new power of Wayfarer, Gavin has the ability to journey to all seven realms. To end the invasion, he must travel to the realm of chaos and summon Ritol. But can he escape before the beyonder champion kills him, devours his soul and takes his place as Wayfarer?

Reeling from the losses of the past year, the Quelstow family must find a future in the shadow of the Strangbrouden aerie. Caden, haunted and broken, and Rane, in a state of frightening and ever-changing evolution, struggle to discover their place in a fractured world.
But when an ancient enemy rises in the mountains to the west, Rane and Caden must set aside their pain and ambition to fight for their own survival—as well as that of humanity and dragonkind. A hidden truth and a shattered promise threaten all, forcing the siblings to make difficult decisions. One wrong move could bring a devastating war to the three races of the Blessed Empire, but in a world where every side has their own twisted agenda, which choice is right?
Outcast from the temple, brothers Caden and Deshic journey with their family to the Plains of Fire to seek absolution for their crimes. There they endure cruel punishments under the unrelenting eye of the woman who rules over every soul at the temple compound.
When the faithful's true plans for their sister, Rane, come to light, she and Caden flee to dragon territory in search of help.

Aided by the dolphin Sundancer, Jora discovers more long-forgotten secrets of the Spirit Stones—including the ability to call the Colossus, the ancient warrior statues positioned around Jolver. But the Colossus warriors had fought against the previous Gatekeeper in the war known as The Great Reckoning. Can Jora convince them to join her struggle for peace and justice, or will they side with her nemesis and use her brother against her?
Determined to save her, they approach a dragonborn alchemist who promises help but leads them along a path of hardship, darkness, sacrilege, and death. Impossible choices divide the brothers as their love and loyalty are tested. What price is too high to save someone you love?
