The chase continues as Akielas tries to find the remnants of the dragon gods before the Specters do. Two of his friends have already fallen to the Specters and the chaos rages on. The burden grows on Akielas's shoulder and now he seeks help from a demigod who lives in a city in the sky.
Akielas believes that only Caim, the demigod, can put an end to the Specters but the demigod is reluctant. While Akielas tries to coax Caim, his friends seek ancient power and lost magic.
Although his allies share his struggle, Akielas fears that the Specters are far too powerful with two remnants of the gods in their hands and two more close to their reach.
