In a world where magic is outlawed and punishable by death, Tasis Kadara has much to fear. When he discovers his own magical ability, he also discovers that he’s been chosen to resurrect the legendary Mages’ Guild of the Dragon’s Claw. With only some disturbing dreams and a strange cat to guide them, Tasis and his sister Zaree leave everything they’ve ever known in hopes of finding the isle that once housed the guild.
Kelwin Tiovolk has left his village under the suggestion of his mentor. As an elf wandering into human civilization, he’s in danger from the people around him simply for being who he is. A brawl at the inn he’d stopped at leads him straight into the path of the young man he’s been having dreams about, and he’s compelled to help out Tasis and his sister any way he can. But will Tasis find what he’s looking for, or will he die trying?
The present is about to meet the past, as a thousand years of waiting comes to an end.
