Keepers of Runes is a coming of age fantasy series for teens and adults. Driven by separate ideals, young mercenaries unravel the chilling secrets of Terranesit, a world ravaged by darkness. After unveiling the fiend spurned from a vain society, the odd band of heroes is snared by the ensuing holy war. Their noble deeds are twisted into the dark web of despair haunting the realm as they struggle to bring peace, while fleeing assassins and a vile necromancer. Darkness of the heart threatens to devour those most desperate to spare their homeland.

Haunted by his sordid past, Corinth emerges from his solitude within the eternal forest around Enzlintine.
Eager to serve, he is sent away under the ruse of a mercenary to quell the troubled region plagued by Khalid, the Lord of Conquest. Unsure of his companions, he discovers a world unlike the one imparted by his vain race.
The trail of deadly contracts leads them to a mysterious tower inhabited by an unforseen evil. It forces them into greater dangers to retrieve an unknown object, under the escort a young girl it claims as his ward. Offering her assistance to flee in exchange for her safety, her charm and peculiar lineage forces the noble soldier of fortune to question his precious ideals while seeking refuge. They race towards a frigid wasteland to find the bane of the evil that stalks them, while battling assassins, ominous creatures, and the forces of Khalid.
