Neyael, the Lich Queen of Anklen, is on the cusp of unlocking the terrible powers of the Black Tower. All she requires is two more sacrifices. When she finds one, a girl called Kalli in southwest Sawlkeim, she sends out her elemental deities and evil minions to get her quarry.
Meanwhile, in the sleepy village of Ranningem, Volgen Herduin, tournament knight and caravan guard, is visiting his old friend Rhiathain for a night of drinking and gambling. He finds a man in love who is about to find out if the Gods have blessed his union with the fair Kalli. Before he can find out, bandits kidnap her and the chase is on.
To the folk of Sawlkeim, Neyael is the ancient evil who cast them from their homeland, and it falls to King Ottar to raise a band of volunteers to help Rhiathain and Volgen on their quest. For him, it’s about revenge and freeing his homeland. For all of them it’s an adventure of good versus evil.
Volgen is the first story chronicling the rise of Volgen the Red in his story from being a humble knight to a living legend known across the universe. Olaf Thorn has crafted a sweeping fantasy world populated with heroes, villains, magic, deep lore, and monsters that will appeal to the young and old alike.
