Enter the world of Haven, a refuge for doomed civilizations.
Ancient scripture foretells – a child will be born; he will be known by many names Marked, First of the Marked, and Doomseeker. His coming will bring chaos, ushering the world into an era of blood and fire. He will take the dark throne, and with his might, kill the Sun God, plunging Haven into night. When the world is black and the creatures of the underworld scuttle out of the depths, the Doomseeker will rule the kingdoms of the Haven from the throne of darkness.

But there is hope.

The Doomseeker will be born with markings. Through his marks, the world will know him, so he can be killed to save the world from his destiny.

When a righteous Warlock saves a mother in labor, he finds himself face to face with the Doomseeker. But the innocent life of a child isn’t so easily extinguished. The Warlock makes the impossible choice to hide the Doomseeker from his order of mages and the world, endangering Haven to save a child and get a second chance at fatherhood.

The Warlock must teach the child to follow the light. Maybe then, the prophecies plaguing the Doomseeker can be wrong.

Can the Doomseeker save himself and the world from his grim destiny?
