Fear and misunderstanding nearly destroyed humanity’s natural ability to create magic. Five Great Henges went silent during a Great War centuries ago and the most skilled wizards of all time – Cherished Weavers – met their end. The world’s Trade Houses rose to dominate society and established five secretive Priories to maintain the peace with their Enforcers.
A new threat of world domination rises in the Central Realms when a Grand Peer begins to dictate his will upon the Trade Houses and the Priories.
A crazed old witch seduces an unwitting young family of wandering merchants to become the means to renew the ancient world order of the Cherished. What they create may be even more dangerous than the Grand Peer and another Great War.
