Nearly 500 years ago, the War of Wizards almost destroyed the world of Melarandra. The Order of Maget was created to ensure this never occurred again. For five centuries they have destroyed any creature or human who possessed magical abilities. But, even as this went on, a prophecy had foretold magic's return.Royal twins Koral and Eric Traven had been told since they were children that the prophecy pertained to them. The prophecy told that both were needed to complete the task of returning magic, but Eric has other ideas. Always wanting to go down in history as a great hero, he plans to do it alone. Now, as their sixteenth birthday approaches, the betrayal the prophecy had foretold has occurred, setting everything into motion. Eric had gone off on his own, leaving Koral to scramble to find him, for if they do not achieve the task set before them together, magic would return chaotic, and destroy the world as they know it.Now, with the help of Gillock, a wizard from the old days, and beings that are no longer supposed to exist, Koral sets out into the Central Lands. Time is already against her and she wonders if she will find her brother in time. And, more importantly, before the Order does.
