Magic fades. Darkness rises.
Darion Ulther and his family have carved out a simple life for themselves in the untamed hinterlands of a wild realm, far from lords and kingdoms and warfare. After destroying the last existing record of a powerful spell capable of crippling magic itself, they assumed they were safe from the machinations of Dathrond’s power-hungry ruler.
They were wrong.
A new threat has emerged in the east, and with it a startling shift in the symmetry between magic and nature. When the Five Realms fall into preternatural crisis, Darion and his loved ones will set out on an adventure to restore balance to the realms – and, if they are fortunate, to awaken the Mage Song once more, for good and all.
