All her life sixteen-year-old Katja has been haunted by a strange certainty that she faces a lifetime of conflict. Her dreams foretell of monsters and terrible foes, and she hones combat skills as best she can in a peaceful village in Baldur's Coast despite not understanding who these foes are or what her purpose is.
After a demon straight from her nightmares descends on the village with terrible consequences, a strange woman with a young face and an ancient bearing arrives. The stranger promises both the answers and all the dangerous adventures her soul yearns for. With that Katja finally goes out into the wider world. Under the woman's tutelage she begins to hone her supernatural talents as well as her physical ones. But time is short. Old foes seek to step out of the shadows and seize power, and Katja's baptism of fire draws near . . .
A Clash of Shadows
Young Katja has survived her first skirmish in the Silent War, finally getting to satisfy her warrior nature. But now she has had a taste of adventure and grows restless for another one as her mentor Serdra continues her training in combat and their mystical gifts.
Katja's wish for further action is granted when a mysterious night-time clash sets a terrible demon loose in the world of mankind. Katja and her mentor travel to investigate and destroy the monster, as their nature demands.
Between stalking and being stalked by shadowy foes, Katja's ability to stand on her own is put to the test. And her excitement fades as the true cause of the conflict they have walked into becomes clear. A truly terrible threat to the world lies at the centre of it, and Katja's greatest battle yet awaits.
It is almost time. Katja has prevailed against warriors, curses, demons and revenants and is nearly fully trained as a Redcloak. She and her mentor Serdra have bloodied the Brotherhood of the Pit multiple times, and thwarted their grabs for power.
But now a new leader has risen within the secret order. One with a personal grudge against Katja, the terrible might of the sorcerers of yore, and no patience for the subtle games of the Silent War.
Katja and Serdra get separated, as an invading army bolstered by the Brotherhood's demonic sorcery marches on a city, bent on conquest. At last, to her great excitement and dread, Katja must stand on her own in the city's defence. The Brotherhood has brought back the old wars of magic and monsters, and so Katja must embrace her people's old role as legendary champions.
Beyond a storm of steel, blood and fire lies the purpose and glory Katja has longed for. And near-certain death.
