Book 1 in the World of Melarandra Series
Royal twins Koral and Eric Traven had been told since they were children a prophecy pertained to them. The prophecy told of the return of magic, something forbidden in the Central Lands for almost 500 years, yet they both possess it. Each has a unique ability, and both are needed for the prophecy to come to fruition. But there is a problem. Eric wishes to be remembered by history as a hero, and has set off on his own to fulfil the prophecy, leaving Koral to scramble to catch up.
The Order of Maget, the group responsible for keeping magic in check, has an agenda of their own. Sending out the Magima, highly trained trackers, and the ones responsible for finding all things, and people, who possess magic, the Order wishes to make certain this prophecy does not get fulfilled.
With the help of Gillock, a wizard from the old days, and new friends she meets along the way, Koral sets out into the Central Lands. Time is already against her and she wonders if she will find her brother in time. And more importantly, before the Order does.
