About the Book

Prophecy and Destiny

Five thousand years ago, a comet was on a collision course with t'Thera. To stop it from destroying life across the planet, all of the wizards and fully realized sorcerers and sorceresses combined their power to arrest its descent, destroying themselves in the process. With their passing, no wizards would rise again, and no sorcerer would ever claim the strength of those lost in The Falling of The Skies.

One mystery from before The Falling would spark wars, and inspire adventurers for five millennia - The Source. The Source is a mysterious prophesied relic of sorcerous energies, capable of changing the destiny of the entire world. And only one will be able to wield this power - The Seeker.

In his search for The Source, The Seeker has miscalculated, and lost his power. As he struggles to regain his abilities, he finds himself embroiled in a rebellion that could have far reaching repercussions for all the world.

Driven by family deaths, leaving her the last child of her line, a princess abandons castle and kin. Instead of the finest wardrobe, courts and banquets and privilege she is in hiding in the countryside, sword-in-hand, leading a rebellion.

The King would have been content to have history say he ruled well and passed on an Orderly kingdom to his heir. Yet the presence of an illegal sorcerer and the rebellion of his daughter are only two of the threats his legacy faces.

The forces of Chaos are on the march. The Seeker realizes that if they overcome the forces of Order, his quest will fail, and the world will never know peace again.

Failure is to lose all to Chaos. Can a sorcerer, rebel princess, and king find the true path?
