Once again two worlds become inextricably entangled in an engrossing tale of mystery and adventure. On Earth Rahlys continues her training with Quaylyn while Melinda's dreams are haunted by the taint of Droclum. Jack Faulkner holds the key to solving a mystery and Leaf, Crystal, and Rock charm their way into the hearts of all. On Aaia (Anthya's World) Rojaire still seeks his long-lost Kaylya and a secret valley hidden in the Crescent Mountains on the Devastated Continent consolidates the first steps toward revolution on a world that values population control over individual freedom. And somewhere...Brakalar still possesses the rune-covered chest containing the Rod of Destruction.
