In a time of great darkness, when evil sweeps the land, a prophecy foretells the coming of a savior, a child that will defeat the forces of evil and save the world. She is Kyria, the Chosen One.

A full year since Kyria first set foot in the Mage’s Council, and she could hardly believe how different her life was. She had friends, she had teammates, she had instructors she liked, and she even enjoyed the classes she was taking. She was not sure how it happened, but Kyria had become a Mage in every sense of the word, and was enjoying every minute of it.

But according to the Madrew prophecy, Kyria’s destiny is not to just be a Mage, but to be the savior of the world. One of the Triad, the champion swordsman Arifos, risks everything to fulfill his obligation by protecting Kyria and helping her to fulfill the prophecy.

Taken forcibly from the place she now calls home, Kyria finds that the world has become very dangerous with the forces of Zoldex lurking around every corner. Arifos’s definition of protection put’s Kyria in more danger than she ever has been in before. Without her friends to help her, Kyria must struggle to survive in a world that has become deadly and foreign to her. Her only hope is to find a way to get back to the Mage’s Council and finish her studies so that she is ready to face the dangers of the world and find some way to live up to her prophesied destiny.
