The Hidden King (chs 1-3)

Hidden truths. Hidden power. Hidden destiny.

On the shores of an oily sea, in the streets of a starving city, a young man named Áed scraps to build a life for himself and the makeshift family he loves. Scarred by a trauma he cannot remember, and haunted by the brutal damage it left behind, he has no idea of the courage his future will demand.

When a heart-wrenching tragedy shatters his family, a desperate Áed risks a treacherous journey to seek a kingdom of legend--and a new beginning. But an ancient legacy smoldering within him is about to turn deadly, and neither he--nor the legends--will ever be the same.
