Root felt fear course through her veins, but it was soon trampled by the now swelling thunder of Lord Blick's voice. "But among you, from the depths of despair will rise heroes! Indeed, the victors of this, DréAmm's greatest race shall earn a seat in the throne room of Legend!" The final note of his speech rang like a distant bell of old, conjuring images of majesty and greatness.
Root marveled in the moment hardly imaginable. How did she, a lowly garden raider become a competitor in the Magisterial Treasure Quests? She surveyed the others, hundreds of vying teens...which two would become her teammates? What if she got stuck with jerks? Or losers? Worse yet, what if she was the loser? Especially if her magic didn't 'kick in'! Lord Blick had said most would fail this first race, weeding the teams down to six, then five, then four, then...
Doubt suddenly swarmed Root. But it somehow rode the back of something else, something much more fierce...something that demanded she stay...
The Race of a Lifetime is about to begin...
