After waking to find her teenaged
sister at her apartment in California begging to be allowed to stay after
running away from home, Allison McNeal thought her biggest problem that day
would be to keep her former stepfather from finding out before she could talk sense
into her sister, not the series of strange, unnerving incidents throughout the
morning that suddenly have her second-guessing her sanity, and especially not
the brilliant light that abruptly flashes in front of them when the two sisters
are walking in a nearby park as a hole is seemingly ripped into the very fabric
of reality, sucking a terrified and screaming Allison within and ultimately
into another world altogether.
Found within the kingdom of
Lamia and suddenly manifesting frightening abilities she hasn’t the slightest
clue how to control, Allison learns that the locals believe that she’s the Golden
Mage, a figure of legend with the ability to perform powerful and terrible
spells that haven’t been seen for centuries and destined to fulfill an ancient
prophecy where a single decision will ultimately decide the fate of not only
two warring kingdoms—one her new home and the other ruled by a cruel mage-king
obsessed with Lamia’s conquest—but also a world moving closer to a prophesied
time of possible annihilation.
In a world where many see her
arrival as a curse and others as a powerful means towards a dark end, Allison’s
only guides are a young Mage-general struggling with his own dark past of
secrets and betrayals and the Brothers in Divinity, a secretive order of
priests and mages whose only loyalties lie with their god and whose divine laws
must be followed above all others.
War is swiftly approaching, and if the prophecy is to
be believed, only she has the power to determine which kingdom will fall.
