Faced with the rite of passage that makes him an adult, Gnak seeks out a suitable sacrifice to the gods of his people. Deciding to capture a human, he finds himself injured and at the mercy of the very prisoner he sought to put to death.
Through a series of unforeseen events, Gnak finds knowledge into the workings of the world, and the gods, that he has never before fathomed. Above all, he finds that his hatred of the other races is little more than his own ignorance and Orcish pride.
Against all he has known, and all he once believed, Gnak is forced to defy those of his kind with hope to change their ways and lead them to a better future.
With so many lives on the line, will he succeed in time to save those closest to his heart?
