When sixteen-year-old Harius is chosen to guard a mystic key and sword, he’s sure there’s been some mistake. Protecting the divine relics requires the celestial flame, a power that only mystic warriors can wield. And while Harius is training to become such a warrior, he’s lacked the faith needed to access the flame ever since his mother’s tragic death.
Despite his doubts, Harius accepts the calling at a time when evil forces threaten to destabilize his world. As the son of his nation’s most controversial leader, Harius soon becomes a delegate to a foreign land filled with technological marvels capable of saving his ancient race of winged men. Acquiring the necessary tech won’t be easy, though, as the king of this land won’t share it unless Harius uses the celestial flame to rescue the royal family from a foe out to conquer the realm.
With so much resting on his fragile faith, Harius fears he will ultimately fail. Yet, amid all the danger he will learn that the relics he guards hold the secret to not only restoring his faith, but to revealing his untold destiny.
“The light shall fill the darkness, the meek shall rule the proud, charity shall vanquish enmity, and through the small and simple shall the Celestial Flame be worked in awesome wonder.”
“There’s something different about you, Harius . . . I’ve noticed it ever since your visit to the High Temple. Though I don’t know what you and your grandfather discussed, I perceive that you have a new sense of purpose and that somehow a dark force is trying to . . . get to you.”
