Elven mage Arien Mirida was living what should have been the perfect life. Lord High Librarian of Thanis, sharing a home with the lovely Alinora, friend and student of the Archmage Talus Yor, the curse that had plagued his family finally broken ... yes, all should have been well. |
Yet a shadow lingers over Arien's heart, a shadow in the shape of a young thief and the memory of a love impossible to forget. When adventure calls and brings with it the promise of a reunion with Cat Sabledrake, Arien is quick to accept the dangerous quest.
In the mysterious southern reaches of the Emerin, the sinister elves known as the Morvalan are hard at work on a project that will destroy Thanis. The force behind the plot is Solarrin, a necromancer inhabiting the powerful body of a minotaur.
As he finds himself facing orcs, Morvalan wizards, and even the dread warrior-priest of a god most elves dare not name, Arien must confront something even more terrible -- the realization that Cat may be lost to him forever.
