Thomena’s father cared enough for her to send her to the best guild of arcane sciences. With her tenure at the guild ending, she chose to return to the country that she dimly recalled has her birthplace. She had to find the emptiness in her heart where her father should have been in all those years of growing into a woman and accomplished magic-user. The young mage went far from civilized lands in her search. When she found him, she discovered the rough nature that had kept him alive for years on the edge of untamed wilderness. Thomena arrives just in time to see how deadly a land could be where the human population is outnumbered by restless monsters.
