In a mystical world where life, spirit and material things live harmoniously, a human emerges, bent on destroying it all.
It was a world like our own, in an age lost to time. For millennia, humans co-existed peacefully with three distinct orders of sentient beings, the mystics, each helping to maintain universal balance by governing either life, matter or spiritual energy. Overseeing this grand orchestration was one solitary being, belonging to a sacred lineage all its own, the Voduss Grei -- the Gray Mystics. Spurred by a premonition of the world's end at the hands of a rebellious human from a small seaside village, Noryssin, the last of the Gray Mystics, saw the village destroyed. The events from that night set off thirty years of chaos and discord among all beings. Lakos, one of the few human survivors from the tragedy, emerged with the singular goal of exacting revenge against not only the Voduss Grei but also all mystics. Caught amid the conflict was Thayliss, a human who had spent the past three decades living among the Ohlinn, or spirit-mystics, as one of their own. Finding his once-peaceful life destroyed, and the only family he has ever known ripped from his grasp, Thayliss must try to stop Lakos from his plot to control all mystic orders and assume the throne of the Voduss Grei.

Endorsement from previous novel, Tidal Force: This is one of those books you do not want to begin the night before a big meeting because you will still be completely lost in the adventure when the sun comes up... [Boudreau] delivers murderous plots and romantic twists in a narrative so fast-moving and intense that you'll feel you're living--not reading--the adventure. ~ Terry Irving, 4-time Emmy award-winning writer and producer, author of Freelancer series
