Lord-Castellant Hamilcar Bear-Eater, leading a hunt in the enemy-haunted Gorwoods, has dreams that he deems prophetic – dreams that might derail his mission… or aid it.

Hamilcar Bear-Eater returns, and this time he’s having prophetic dreams. There’s no way that’s going to lead to trouble…


Hamilcar Bear-Eater, famed Lord-Castellant of the Astral Templars, leads the hunt for a deadly creature in the untamed Gorwoods of the Realm of Beasts. But when strange dreams come to Hamilcar that he thinks are prophecy, his mission becomes muddied. Will he heed the call of the Oak, or continue the hunt? And if he chooses the former, will it doom the mortal woodsman his warriors aid to a grisly death? Or could the dreams be the key to completing his mission?
