"David Artan is a dock rat on a poor fringe world where he takes every job he can and prize-fights to earn enough money to get off world. When he's hired to guide a boat crewed by an interstellar mafia, he comes face to face with an ancient power-the Veil-that was pivotal to a civil war that ended decades ago. David is "Attuned" to this power and was almost killed by agents of the dead and defeated Tyrant who nearly enslaved the galaxy. He's rescued by an Adept of the Paragon order, warrior scholars that study the power and seek to keep any from upsetting the balance that keeps all life in order. David is given the chance to journey beyond the Veil and into another dimension where he can claim a stone of immense power and return it to base reality and wield it as a weapon against the Tyrant. The world beyond the Veil is nothing like what David knows, and he'll be opposed by insidious evil, self-doubt, and sabotage from the very people who are supposed to help him. While beyond the Veil, David learns that a Conjunction is nigh, an event that could sunder the galaxy if evil forces succeed. David must claim a Veil stone deep in the other dimension before the Tyrant's agents can beat him to the prize"-- Provided by publisher.
