Coren’s curse makes life unbearable, causing disasters wherever he goes. So it’s no surprise when an evil lord appears seeking an ancient weapon which could cause the world to end. Coren must stop the impending disaster. Accompanied by a swordswoman with ties to the king’s murder—and her strangely intelligent hawk—they embark on an epic race to reach the shield first. Coren is confident he can prevail and maybe even free himself from his dreaded curse. Unfortunately, his curse has other ideas.
