And so, when magic is discovered - raw and unshaped - loose in the forests of Turunda and tearing the land to shreds, the Order of Mages is accused of sabotage during an already tumultuous time.
With the Order under close scrutiny and wars raging all around them, only Rathen Koraaz, a banished mage and deceased by all official records, has the time and the expertise to handle it before the world collapses beneath itself. With the help of a renowned historian and an inquisitor of the Hall of the White Hammer, they set out on a search for answers and solutions, until desperation leads them to chase the legends of an extinct people and the original users of magic.
Harbouring secrets of faith, magic and vengeance, the group flee harpy attacks in the wilds, riots in the cities, and the eternal hunt of imperial assassins even into the harsh depths of the desert.
But is there any truth to the legend? And, if not, how far will their world crumble before they can find an alternative?
