With the groeliin attack stopped and the Deshmahne defeated in the north, there is a tentative peace, but war still threatens.
The south remains unsettled and, though weakened, Raime has escaped. The key to stopping coming war rests with scattered allies, but can they survive long enough to work together in time to prevent another destruction? Roelle, injured and near death, must find the healing necessary so that she can rebuild the Magi warriors. Alriyn searches for answers in an unlikely place, leading the Magi toward a path they had never considered. Isandra travels north where the Antrilii have uncovered something not seen in a thousand years. Jakob now understands the reason for his growing powers, but there is much for him to learn about what it means for him to be one of the damahne. His search for answers leads him along the fibers and into the past, where he discovers Raimes influence. If Jakob fails to master his powers in time, Raime will grow even stronger than before, and this time, there will be none who can stop him.
