In the township of Cassimina, a long-awaited legend takes shape.

Krampel Paddymeyer, a 16-year-old orphan, has just learned about the power locked deep within him – the power to wield a great sword of the past – when his master dies following an orc raid. Orphaned again, Krampel sets out and becomes a bounty hunting loner, taking bounties without passion or prejudice toward the intended target. He turns into a heartless and unfeeling individual, where even the slightest touch causes him to grow agitated. With the power of Flad-rul, the Flame Thrower, on his hip, Krampel becomes the most feared bounty hunter by the time he reaches the age of 21.

It is in this year that Krampel’s life takes a drastic change. A task appointed to him by a wealthy land owner, followed by a request to apprehend two criminals wanted by the High Imperial Inquisitor, sends Krampel down a path least expected – and firmly entrenches him on the path toward his destiny. Enter a dwarf prince from a kingdom in the west, and the stakes grow higher: The dwarves of Labergator want the second criminal for crimes against a neighboring realm. When Krampel and his new apprentice meet the dwarf prince, they join forces to bring the criminal – someone from Krampel’s not-so-forgotten past – to justice.

THE RISE OF THE DARK FALCON takes place more than 50 years before the events described in THE OBLOERON TRILOGY, taking the reader on a journey that shapes the realms of Obloeron for the next half a century.
