Something that is not earned or deserved cannot be taken and held without consequences. Ryder Payne isn’t a typical teenager. While most of his classmates are attending high school dances and football games, he is perfecting his sword fighting and martial arts skills. He is different. But, he doesn’t understand how different until a chance meeting reveals his destiny. Everything he knew about his family and his past was created to protect him. He is from a different world. It’s a world ruled by the evil Sovereign, Koli’Niko, Ryder’s father. Niko seized the throne by force and holds his power by executing anyone opposing him. According to Prophecy, Ryder is the one True Sovereign and the only one who can defeat his father. To fulfill his destiny, Ryder must travel to an unknown world, find the freedom fighters known as the Amadi, and learn to use his newly awakened magic. Only then can he take his rightful place as the first True Sovereign in two thousand years.
