The bloodstorm is coming. A raging storm infused with blood red magic sent by the evilest overlord to destroy a land that he and his demon army have been barred from entering. No one can stop the storm's destructive force. No one except....
Triya, a nineteen-year-old runner from a remote brownelf village is the only pureblood in the isolated land of Toor. She is the only one who can wield the dark magic necessary to seal the mythical Gates against the invaders from the outerworld.
The problem is, the Gates are already open, the invaders are in the land and the desperately needed magic has bee outlawed and buried by the Toorian High Council. Triya has no idea that she has the power to use magic. If she did, she would be labeled a "shadowed on" and sent to prison. When Triya's village is destroyed by an unseen enemy, she sets out alone to find anyone alive. All he finds in one lone survivor, Azuma, a barbarian prisoner. Together they form a stormy and sometimes volatile alliance. In a race against time and the coming storm, they must find the magic to give Toor a fighting chance against total devastation..
