The Blighted Flame
Revenge is a dish best served scorching!
For five years, Virgil Truesdale has hunted the witch responsible for ripping his family to shreds. Desperate to satiate his hunger for vengeance, he agrees to participate in the Crusader's Exam — a hellish test designed to push him to the absolute brink. Should Virgil emerge victorious, he’d join the elite ranks of the Crusader’s Alliance, granting him access to a worldwide network of resources.
With danger looming around every corner, Virgil plunges forward, determined to keep to himself and live long enough to reap the rewards of his sacrifices. Old habits die hard, however, and he soon acquires fearsome adversaries determined to make his life miserable, a pair of allies harboring their own dark secret and a passionate but inconveniently timed romance.
Will Virgil be able to rise from the flames and right the wrongs plaguing his family?
