Damien Vennar used to be a god.
As a Charon, Damien had the power to create entire universes. Then, five hundred years ago, he gave it all up. He suspended the nanotechnology that granted his magic, and he began to age—and eventually die—like anyone else. For centuries, Damien has lived among those who once worshiped him, his past fading into myth and legend.
Hundreds of years later, when 14-year-old Ceril Bain finds Damien’s old Flameblade buried in his grandfather's garden, he is put on the fast-track to follow in Vennar's footsteps. Over the next six years, Ceril trains to become a Charon aboard the Inkwell Sigil, a dimensional-traveling ship left behind from the Charons' once widespread empire. Just as Ceril is preparing to undergo his Rites and finish his training, the Sigil loses power. Stranded in space, Ceril and four of his classmates are given their final assignment: explore uncharted territory, find a way home, and bring back the one person who can help—Damien Vennar himself.
While away, Ceril and his team find themselves in a predicament when they confuse an attempt at first contact with a new species as an attack. His team kills two of the world’s winged inhabitants, and the entire team is then captured and imprisoned. But not for the reasons they believe. Their winged captors realize Ceril's team might be the return of their prophesied, magic-weilding messiahs.
But Ceril is just a simple young man from a farming village. That’s impossible. Isn’t it?
