Tindrakin stood and walked past Roland back toward the barn. Roland could smell the strong drink of the dwarves on Tin’s breath. Roland hoped he had put an end to that need. He walked around behind the small home and found Ungar directing other dwarves in their construction work. They were leveling the foundation for the rest of the house and marking the corners with wooden stakes.
“Ungar, I want you to know how much you and your soldiers being here means to me,” Roland said.
“That is our way,” Ungar said. “We stand beside our friends.”
“Will you be here when I return in the spring?”
“I will not,” Ungar said. “My crew will be though.”
“Where must you go?” Roland asked.
“Well with you, you dolt,” Ungar replied. “I’ll not be missin’ any fightin’. I’m leavin’ behind me a good crew and they’ll do ya a fine job. Battarc ‘ill be in charge of ‘em. He’s sturdy, good with stone, and one of the finest warriors I know. I’ll be marchin’ with you.”
“This is not your fight,” Roland said.
“I know that,” Ungar said. “I don’t need a cause, I just need a place.”

A mysterious dark storm has been plaguing the world of Vyszalos for more than two months. It spread from Almotte to Kadrassi, covering both continents in darkness, death, and desolation. Yessod, a higher-being from another world has arrived, seeking to stop the utter annihilation of the planet. But things are complicated.

Furthermore, Yessod must solve the mystery and somehow save this world without giving away his true nature to any of its inhabitants as that would irreparably alter its history for the worse. Can Yessod solve the puzzle in time? Will he find a way to undo the evil and bring back life and light into this world? As Yessod rushes to discover what lies behind these ill-fated events, this gripping, fascinating story will take you unto a world like no other…
