Continues the time-travel, good-versus-evil story of Welshman John Ross, possessor of the black runestaff, as he confronts a supernatural evil

Blackwell North Amer
In the eleventh century the Welsh hero Owain Glyndwr was chosen to combat the demonic evil of the Void and disappeared from history to fulfill that mission. Armed with powerful magic, Glyndwr became a Knight of the Word - a draining and demanding legacy passed on eight centuries later to John Ross, a professor of English literature on tour in Wales.
In accepting the black runestaff that channeled the magic of the Word, John Ross accepted a solemn trust - and an awful burden. Each night he dreams of hellish futures wrought upon the world by the Void. And each dream is of a future that will come to pass unless Ross prevents it in the present.
Then an unspeakable act of violence shatters his weary beliefs. Haunted by guilt, John Ross turns his back on the Word.
But a fallen Knight makes a tempting prize for the Void, and merciless demons soon stalk Ross and those close to him. His only hope is young Nest Freemark, who wields a powerful magic all her own.
