       Additional Information  
      Back To Earth! Here in the long anticipated sequel to The Morcyth Saga, Brian S. Pratt returns to the series that started it all. Five years have passed since the end of the Madoc/Empire war. When word of his war-time exploits begins to spread, life at The Ranch grows intolerable as people seek him out. Now living on an island off the coast of Cardri, he has assumed the moniker, The Dark Mage, and taken steps to ensure his privacy. Despite his best efforts to keep trouble from his door, soldiers led by a mage of great power lay siege to his island. Magical forces are exchanged, things go badly, and one of James' unfinished experiments inadvertently activates causing him, Jiron, and Jiron's daughter Jira, to be sent to Earth. James is soon to learn that magic is no longer at his beck and call. In fact, he can't even sense its presence. To make matters worse, their arrival upon Earth precipitated a fire blast. Now they are wanted men, suspected terrorists no less. Somehow, James must find a way back to Jiron's home world before the authorities catch up with them. But how can he, if he can't even perform the most basic of spells such as summoning his orb? Earth is truly a land barren of magic.
