Enter hero Tadrec, a graduate of a prestigious magical university, recently the only member of his party to survive a cursed artifact. He is stoned on witchreed and mourning his friends with absolutely nothing to do. When he's asked by the president of his alma mater to rescue Daumis and Cewyn because they're the most powerful magicians to be born in a century, he agrees. For a price.
Tadrec, Daumis, and Cewyn must encounter golems, insane monks, cannibals, giant badgers, an undead army, and a demigod all just before they can reach the magical, floating city of Horizon. With the forces of evil gaining ground from behind them, no matter what all the three of them go through, it always seems to Tadrec and the boys that their destination moves ever-farther away from them...In fact, it flies.
