And then there was darkness...
The battle for control over the Order of Alhazred mounts as Cassandra, Grandmaster Nicodemus's only heir, challenges Leander's right to be the next grandmaster. The clash takes a shocking twist when Timothy discovers that the ancient evil sorcerer Alhazred is still alive – and has gathered nearly enough dark power to take back control of his order.
Timothy, Leander, and Cassandra become reluctant allies in the fight to stop Alhazred from regaining power. But is Leander the enemy?
When a magical brownout dims all the sorcerous power in Arcanum, both in people and in lights, a new world of trouble is revealed.
