After a terrible mistake in his youth, Esavas Daruvias has found a home at the secluded Tower as a Master of weather magic, vowed to celibacy, self-mastery, and non-violence.
Then, without warning, the troubles of the past resurface to disrupt his quiet life. The Mardavian Islands are threatened by a rebellion led by a mage with strange and terrible powers - his sister Rayaluna, the person hurt most by his long-ago mistake. Though Esavas has been hidden away at the Tower for more than twelve years and is sworn to a life of peace, the crown prince calls on him to help put a stop to the rebellion - and refusing isn't an option.
Treated as a prisoner and traitor by the king, caught between the king's and the prince's conflicting goals, baffled by his sister's impossible powers, and bound by his oath to never raise a hand in violence, Esavas must risk everything he knows, everything he is, even his own soul, to stand against Rayaluna's terrifying magic and save the people of the Islands - and Rayaluna herself - from her destructive madness.
From an austere scholars' tower to sun-soaked beaches, from desperate hillside battles to seas full of danger, come discover a new magic-filled adventure in Mage of Storm and Sea.
Note: Mage of Storm and Sea is an epic fantasy series with a prominent romantic storyline in the later books. There will eventually be an HEA for the characters, but they have to work for it first! Mage of Storm and Sea is set in the world of the Wildings saga, in the Islands of Silas's mage ancestors, but stands alone and can be enjoyed if you haven't read the Wildings books.
