As the son of the captain of the guard, Emel Brodst sees himself as more than Adrina's friend.
He sees himself as the one who will protect her from herself, from the world, from the darkness.
He knows that before Adrina can see the world as it is she must see herself and she must seek truth.
This is an introduction
to Adrina's story in the Ruin Mist books by Robert Stanek.
