When the Hunter Cries introduces the story of Quinn Tabor, a young man struggling to discern his role in a legend that began nearly two centuries before his birth.
When Quinn inherits a long forgotten and enchanted blade, along with a tome full of contemptible Church secrets, he is unwittingly drawn into a struggle for power that spans generations. Enemies old and new seek to thwart Quinn's efforts, and he soon finds that dealing death and defying it are equally gratifying. As corrupt Church officials try to destroy Quinn and suppress the sinister information that he now holds, the young heretic finds that he possesses an untapped power one that is as much a burden as it is a blessing.
This power may be the only thing that can save the kingdom of Eldimorah from ruin. It may also be the very thing that destroys it.
