Overview

In a fertile valley undisrupted by the aether-shattering death of the old Aian Empire, the Tower and its Guardians have entertained generations of wealthy mirror-scrying mages while adventurers from around the world risk their lives for fortune and fame. But on the one day the Tower stood unguarded, an intruder tried to seize the magic powering the vast structure. Now, locked out of the Tower’s innermost chambers, Kerric Vo Mos must brave the deadly traps keeping trespassers at bay in order to reclaim control.

Unfortunately, Kerric wields a pen far better than a sword, and the way into the Tower’s sanctum is treacherous. Only the help of an experienced player like Myal the Mendhite can get him to where he must go. But mutual respect will not be enough. Passion must also be employed, along with armor and weapons, as they embark on a perilous quest past monsters, riddles, and other dangers that even the Tower’s most dedicated viewers have never seen before.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Eastern Aiar, a tower containing a flow of magical power is a destination for adventurers eager to risk life and limb. On the one day of the year when the tower’s master, Kerric Vo Mos, plays hooky, a rogue mage makes a play to take over the guardianship of the tower. Kerric isn’t about to give up without a fight, but in order for him to regain control, he needs the help of a tough, beautiful Mendhite named Myal. With her brawn and his magic, the pair can make swift work of the trickiest traps—until they reach the seraglio, where only physical attraction and unbridled passion will get them safely through to the source of Kerric’s power. Both fantasy and romance fans will enjoy this romp, the first in a planned eight-book series. (May)
