       Additional Information  
     
      Archmage Planir and the wizards of Hadrumal have demonstrated their devastating powers and the corsair threat is no more. The mainland rulersí relief is overshadowed with fear of one day facing such a threat to their own dominion. Will Tormalinís Emperor make an alliance with Soluraís wizards who so openly covet Hadrumalís secrets? Will he seek out that other mysterious magic, Artifice, to counter Planirís magecraft? How will the aloof Aetheric adepts of the mountains answer such an appeal?
    Aldabreshin warlords have always forbidden wizardry. Now the Archmage has encroached so unforgivably on their domains, their laws demand a wizardís shed blood to wash away the taint and the Aldabreshi have countless men and ships for such a quest.

    With many of the Wizard Council disputing Planirís chosen course, he must look beyond the island city for allies. To Suthyfer, the controversial haven for mageborn far away in the Eastern Ocean. To Caladhria, where Corrain, Baron Halferan and Lady Zurenne believe they have finally won respite from all their trials. But absence of strife is hardly peace. The lull before winterís storms descend from the distant northern peaks will be a short one.
