A young girl is stolen from her mother by agents of a jealous goddess, escapes and becomes a street waif known as 'Wren' who, decades later, is an elder member of the Brethren Guild, a thieves guild in the ancient city of Corwin.
A battle with a rival Brethren Guild forces Wren to seek refuge in a temple where she receives the first clues that will lead her toward the truth of who and what she is. From a dream, an amulet in the shape of a phoenix appears around her neck. Engraved on the back of the magic device is one simple word--Liandra.
Wren must not only learn her identity but how she fits into the universe she lives in. As she later discovers, a savant's sense of self is far more than a name or even a body but a spiritual destiny tied to the very origins of the Ring Realms themselves.
Imagine you're one half of a cosmically powerful being. Wren Kergatha, a savant of forces, is heir to the incredible powers of the first ones. Unfortunately, separated from her beta half, her abilities provide little more than token defense against demons and avatars. To make matters worse, the stronger half is bent on devouring her.
Wren continues her epic quest to regain her memories, family, and heritage. Even with the potent help of the Felspar clan, the young savant of forces finds herself and her allies on the run from the minions of a pantheon lord.
In order to rescue her parents and brother, Wren must find the lost city of Cosmodarus and confront the evil goddess of the moon. But how can she defeat a creature able to ravage entire worlds?
