One fateful night, however, landed him in Gavaron, the home of maimed, elderly, or defiant. Beyond its borders is the Den, an area much more dangerous than Cayden ever imagined. He unwittingly becomes involved in a conspiracy and is one of a handful of survivors fleeing a deadly attack. They set off on a perilous journey in search of refuge and the truth.
