Arlian had never left his home village in the Obsidian Mountains. Until the dragon weather came. Incredible heat, oppressive humidity, dark and angry clouds and dragons. Dragons who destroyed his entire village and everyone in it. As Arlian makes his way through life, he is obsessed with the concept of justice, and that obsession informs every task, every decision. But can one righteous man change the entire world for the better? Or is he doomed by his own actions to become as unjust as those he seeks to destroy?
