Overview

This spell-binding magical fantasy weaves a tale filled with action, adventure and intrigue replete with dark creatures and evil unstoppable forces. Marigold, a lovely young golden-haired wizardess, becomes destined to save her family, friends and her world after her father and mentor (wizards Vorn and Ranith) are presumed dead in the Wilds of Daksin.

Tager, a dwarven prince and his loyal guard Tolkbin, must fulfill Ranith’s last wish to seek out the wizardess and a magical arrow she holds. Together, they set out on a journey joining forces along the way with the nimble elf Alory, tough as nails Cobalt the barbarian and Redlar a seasoned Trelonian Scout.

The questors head west traversing strange lands, suffering numerous misfortunes and the dominion of death. Join them as they battle for survival against hideous monsters and malevolent beings.

The wizardess proves ever resilient as victory or defeat lies in the secret of Magic of Golden Sorrow.

PROLOGUE

"Those that practice the dark arts are responsible for your father’s death, sire. The people are afraid of these dark practitioners. I suggest you outlaw them and their arts."

"What is the difference between them and you?"

"My kind, sire, call upon the powers of this world…they call upon another."

And so the young king did. The people were scared not knowing who would be cursed next. Panicked and frightened they rose up and slew those who practiced black magic. Outlawed and hunted, a mystical lot came into being. Seeking out more knowledge and power, they joined the different arts. Once finished combining, they called to the dark.

Responding in answer, it started to talk. No one was fooled, but they did seek to tame the evil that answered and spoke in its name. As they learned more, they stored it in a book. They enchanted a symbol, so you could look.

"The book!" screamed the witch. "The book!"

Rising up in the dark of night, the hunted practitioners gathered around the witch, who kept uttering, "It is gone…it is gone."

"Who was on watch?" hollered an ageing sorcerer.

"It does not matter!" screamed the witch shrilly.

"The only reason one would….would take it is to summon it."

Silence as heavy as the mountain they dwelt in fell amongst the practioners.

"It is Liben! He was on watch. I cannot find him," a pretty raven-haired sorceress spoke up, shattering the silence of the stillness surrounding them.

"Outside!" yelled a grey-robbed warlock stepping back into the cavern. "They have found us."

"We must fight then!" hollered the ageing sorcerer.

"No! Stop him we must! Warn them!" she yelled.

"No, witch!" the grey-robbed warlock declared.

"We owe them nothing," he said, taking sides with the elderly sorcerer. "We have nothing left to live for. They killed most of our kind already. Leave them to their fate."
