Almon thought he wanted to speak with the dead. This had been his families curse for generations. But no ghost had ever appeared to him. Yet, when a ghost begins plaguing his days and haunting his nights, the boy soon only wishes to be rid of the apparition. Driven by the promise of isolation amidst the mountains, Almon embarks on a quest to summit the Dragonbreath, the tallest one of them all. Instead of silence, he finds Aberfell the Supreme Historian, a man as old as time with an indelible memory. He alone remembers The Provenance, the origin of all things, of Gods, Demons, Witches, and Ghosts. Among Aberfell’s memories is the hidden truth of the fall of divinity, the rise of humanity’s cruelty, and the mystery of the magical creatures called the Timmutes. But Almon must be careful, for there is power in such knowledge. Dangerous to know and deadly to wield. The gods and ghosts listen to such stories and those that tell them, waiting to reclaim what was lost.
