A sinister plot brews in Caledonia: he’s fighting dark magic, she’s conspiring against the King. Will their efforts be enough to stop a Ghoule invasion?
Bryen and Aislinn both learn they hold immense power as Magii. Working separately, they discover multiple players vying for control of Caledonia. The King and his advisor are obvious threats, but an evil runs deeper and endangers more than who controls the Duchies.
As more Ghoules break through the weir, the soldiers of the Southern Marches start to feel the strain of battle – and the Magii realize they may be too few in number to combat the beasts.
Bryen soon realizes his power also contains The Curse, an ancient connection to dark magic that cannot be tamed and ultimately consumes its host.
Will Bryen figure out how to control the two sources of magic within him to stop the Ghoule Overlord? Will Aislinn find a way to stop the King and his advisor before it is too late?
