Twenty-five years ago, the necromancer Amer rose to power on the southern continent of Iecil, killing thousands and raising them to join his army. Then-Prince Daelin evoked the power of the first archmage, his grandsire Cazlandt, ending the fiend’s reign.

When Lord Daelin’s son, Lone, comes across a partial vellum scroll listing ancient objects of power and weapons of magic made by their ancestors, including the archmage Cazlandt, he determines one sword contains a fragment of coalesced energy from another realm discovered centuries earlier and is determined to find the relic before it falls into the wrong hands. Meanwhile, his half-sister Alishia starts to discovery her own inevitable destiny when she finds critical information written by her future self.
