Cerci only wanted to know who her parents were. Abandoned at birth she spent her days toiling away in the Brightwater Archives, working under her adoptive mother, Merilda. But one day, a curious man dropped off a quizzical piece of history to be logged. After what she saw, she had no choice but to dig a little deeper.
Dredge was a simple man, content with working in the Split for as long as he needed to make money for his meals. Though he longed to walk the streets of Brightwater and experience what magic could be like, he was trapped in the dregs of Greyward. He thought he had no way out but an old friend stopped by to make him an offer he could never refuse.
Endri felt comfortable in the shadows. Hidden away from everyone, he could be as small as he wanted. Sneak around to look for any way to wake his sister up from a long, long sleep. Blinded by his love and willingness to go to great lengths, he almost got himself caught, revealing one of Brightwater’s greatest secrets. The shadows are alive in these cities.
In a tale of magic and mystery, three lives, intertwined by the fabric of fate, learn the truth behind their clouded cities. As they discover more secrets hidden far away from any prying eyes, all becomes clear. A resource exists in their land that is far more potent than anything else in the known world. Limitless mana so abundant that others started to notice. The cities must set aside their differences to protect what is theirs or risk losing everything.
