A deadly living darkness sweeps across the city states of Myrrh, a land where a mighty council of Sages conjure magical creations through the use of stories.
Join Alena and Gailen, two apprentice Sages bereft of guidance, and a strange young man named Targ, discovered at the close of a legendary cloudless storm, as they struggle to survive in a world foreign to evil.
