A first novel.
After a lifetime of training, Liath was proud to have passed her final challenge and become a true mage, ready to journey the land of Eiden Myr and find a Triad to bond with as an Illuminator. But the very night of her triumph, her light fails her: She can no longer see the magical illumination guiders, and thus, despite the mage's badge upon her breast, can no longer call herself Illuminator.
Refusing to accept a lightless future, Liath travels to the city and petitions the senior mages of the land for help and a cure. They set a task for her to fulfill: She must find and capture the rogue Dark Mage, and bring him to them for justice; only then will her light be freed.
So begins the most important journey of Liath's life...
