The Rogue Mage
Elika crosses the Bridge to Magic to find the world ruled by magic. Mages run the streets, whilst the tsaren, their masters, hideaway in their great halls, indifferent to the plight of men. Faced with the injustice of the mages, Elika discovers her own untapped gifts that may yet shift the balance of power back into the hands of men. But her dabbling in the power she does not understand draws the attention of the dreaded demi-god Syn’Moreg. Elika must now outwit the shadow that hunts her, whilst seeking a way to free men from their oppressors.
“How could she live in a world where nothing was certain? Where reality was as cutting as a sword and yet as waning as a dream?”
