Every single day, without fail, Rhoran Graves inscribes into his journal the events of the day. His journal contains all of the cumulative memories, trials, failures, and heart of a single person. Everything that he is and was is laid between the pages of a blackened leather-bound book. This journal has been with him through thick and thin, and survived the toughest times of his life just like he has. Rhoran's journal is his only beloved friend, because Rhoran Graves lives in a world completely unlike our own.

Rhoran has a quest. A quest of vengeance, and a quest of defiance. He is the only soldier in a rogue army. He is the diamond in the rough. The savior among the sinners. His quest takes him through perilous dangers, uncharted plains, and across daring concepts of fear. His courage, and his favorite firearm, are his tools.

Meanwhile, a conflict is stirring between leaders of men. Their only goal is conquest. They do not desire peace, nor prosperity...if only for themselves. A myriad of loose factions in the jungle are at each others throats. One humble village will spark the flames of legend, and one young girl will push fate to its boundaries.

Rhoran's world is not being torn apart...it already is. In order to complete his quest, Rhoran Graves is required to make a journey through darkness – a journey that few have traveled, and even fewer have finished. When the cogs of destiny begin to turn, Rhoran will make a new friend, one that will reach him deeper than the hallowed pages of his blood-soaked journal. Together, they will carve a swath through the darkness and create something larger than themselves: a shining light to lead those who need to be led.
