In a realm of magic and wonder, protected by the infamous Storm-Line, a civil war threatens to plunge the land back into darkness. But amidst the chaos, a glimmer of hope arises with the discovery of the mythical Vault of Power, a source of unbridled magical potential. But finding the Vault before the opposing Death-Hunters means crossing into the fabled Unknown Region, a place few mages have ever returned from.
Leading a quest into the most dangerous realm outside their own, a small detachment of the Guard make the voyage through the Storm-Line to face untold horrors. Among this group is a young mage who seeks adventure more than any of her creed. But even she isn’t ready to face the nightmares that follow.
Now their only hope to survive this harsh landscape and find their way home lies not in the magic that has shaped their civilization, but in the survivors of the world left in ruins. But can they be trusted with their lives, or are there secrets hiding under the surface that threaten everything they believe in?
