Destiny. We cannot choose the one we want; only whether or not to accept or deny its existence.
What if the only hope of saving a magical world depended on an ordinary boy?
Taelyon is a land divided; its mortals distrust those different than them; its wizards live indifferent to the suffering of others to see the danger on their doorstep. The battle for dominance is never far off, and death is a daily fear provoked by King Hcaon the Younger’s inability to lead.
Torrein’s parents are powerful wizards, and Torrein’s greatest fear is that he’ll be denied the gift of magic. When magic is denied him, he’s chased from his own village by those he used to call friends. Alone and wandering in a world he doesn’t know, Torrein doesn’t understand that his destiny is far greater than any he could have achieved if magic had been granted him. What plagues him is a desire he can’t have – to be with his family and live his life in peace.
Peace is not easily found in Taelyon. The destiny Torrein fights lies in a prophecy soaked in blood. To claim his rightful power, he must calm his fears and face those who want him and his people dead. Everyone has been blinded to the real evil in their midst, and it will be a fight till the end of the age to reclaim Taelyon’s freedom. Though it’s hard for him to accept, it’s up to Torrein to protect those who have been deceived, and to make sure the evil in their midst doesn’t destroy them all.
