Brother Prodigal, Book One of the Fifteen, introduces The Fifteen, named so by its people, the Dan, because it was divided at the time of the Two Covenants by the Myelara, beings of power and patrons of the Dan. It is the Myelara who discover a grave prophecy that hints at evil on the horizon, but have no idea what it means until they, who thought they were immortal, discover they are being hunted when one of them is murdered. Meanwhile, the Famar, the demons of Nithafell, thought to have been banished over two thousand years ago, emerge from the bodies of men and women sacrificed to the Demon Queen by her worshippers, the Prodigals, and stalk The Fifteen again in ever-increasing numbers, threatening the lives of the Dan and The Fifteen itself. Nicodemus MacAndruis, newly knighted Justiciar, and Theisis Whisperain, blind priestess and his childhood friend, discover this threat when they discover a body sacrificed to the Demon Queen, and when Pentegarn, Nicodemus' older brother, comes back into his life after ten years without a word. Pentegarn is now one of the Faer Danor, wielders of magic feared and despised in The Fifteen, because they are often mistaken for those they hunt, the Prodigals. Pentegarn is after the one responsible for sacrificing the body they found, and he draws Nicodemus and Theisis with him to find the enemy, across a landscape crawling with demons. And when they do find him, they find he was distracting them from something far worse.
