A Warrior’s Path: Rise of a Legend Chronicles of the Originators #1978-1-64136-974-9
The Legend of The Originators, passed down throughout generations, foretells of a chosen few who have been preordained to save the lands from destruction, uniting humans and magical creatures once and for all.
Hadrien, a young prince, has accidentally killed his older brother with his budding magic. With the recent death of his mother, he had no one in his corner to protect him from his father’s hatred, so he runs away from home. He finds himself deep in a dangerous forest when he is found by Arnolis, one of the magical warriors his father taught him to fear. Upon discovering Hadrien’s magical abilities, Arnolis is convinced that the child is one of the chosen ones discussed in the legends. Arnolis takes on the responsibility of raising the child and trains Hadrien in the use of his powers before they become too strong for him to control.
Lord Voth believes that he is the only true law. He wants a new order and his arrogance leads him to believe that he is the one spoken of in the legends, the bringer of destruction. He must find those who oppose him and destroy them.
