This is a prequel to the Ancient Dreams trilogy. This volume also contains a novella, Into the Eternal Wood, a story about Sistina Constella of the Kingdom of Everium.
Some mysteries are shrouded by both time and wars long since past. One of these mysteries revolves around the discovery of the true nature of magic, and the High Mage who ushered in a new era of understanding. Her name was Marin, and her life's work was consumed in the writing of her research.
This is Marin's story, and that of her only student, Emonael, as they completed her research. They faced many trials together, and grew to respect one another as few have ever understood, even as others sought to silence the threat she posed to their power.
