An epic fantasy about magic, jealousy, self-esteem, and three desperate people whose misadventures in love bring the world to its knees.
In a world where violent magic is punished by the gods, mages have learned to use their powers for deception and manipulation. Rynold has learned this lesson better than most.
Instead of openly competing for the heart of Princess Mirelda, he casts aside a lifetime of sacred oaths and misuses an ancient artefact to engineer a scheme that sends her lover, Damian, on a fraudulent pilgrimage to a faraway land.
His plan backfires when the artefact flares into life after centuries of dormancy, and demands that Mirelda herself go after Damian to “bring him back.”
Chosen by the gods themselves for this quest, Mirelda and Rynold leave their home in desperate pursuit of Damian, and emerge into a dangerous world they weren’t prepared for. As their long journey progresses, they come to learn, however, that the greatest threat to them – and to the world – might well come from within…
