Betancourt's first novel.
Ker Orrum longed for a life of magic. When an Oracle tells of ajourney and a gem, his fate is sealed. Vowing to challenge the mighty god known as the Blind Archer, he sets out to win his fortune . . . and finds a destiny few would envy. Pawn to wizards and gods, blinded and helpless, he accidentally opens a gateway and sets an ancient evil loose on the world . . . an evil which only he can defeat! "Ker is reminiscent of Ged of Earthsea and Paul of Dune. Rolicking adventure!" -Jessica Amanda Salmonson, author of the Tomoe Gozen Saga
