The Kingdom needs a new ruler, and the lottery begins.
Gordon throws his name into the choosing tower like all the boys his age, not knowing he would be called. When his name rings out through the crowds, what should be the happiest moment of his life becomes a dark turn of fate.
He wasn’t supposed to be chosen; the system had been rigged by the Firstcouncilor for years. Now, he wants blood. Before he can act against the new King, secret allies spirit Gordon away to begin an adventure that will take him all over the realm.
Pursued by the kingdom airships and the very soldiers sworn to protect him, the young king is forced to align with great warriors and unexpected allies. Gordon’s fate lies in finding enough strength to save not only his kingdom, but the entire world.
