Brightwill, a land razed by war, on the verge of utter destruction.
There are few strongholds left, and few leaders who have the vision and the power to protect their people.
Naze Kinu, the Great Wizard provides a stronghold for the most talented young and old people in the lands. The Amber Refuge is his life's work, a central stronghold built by his comrades, his power and his reputation.
That is why, when he tells his long time aide, Doril, that he intends to tell all about his secret sibling, Riv. His intentions are met with alarm. Naze kept his relation to Riv a secret for half a century.
Riv, known in legend as the Slasher Gremlin, the Prince Slayer, and the thief of the Enduring Light.
Despite the damage his revelation could do to his reputation, Naze is set on telling the true story of his brother, of the days that inspired the legend. Most of those close to him are left to wonder why, and to listen as their leader regales them with the tale of his misadventures with his brother and Oroza, the dragonling.
This is the story of Naze and the brother he can no longer deny.
This is the story of Brightwill in times of drastic change.
