Many moons have passed since Adicia left the Isle of Wisdom, but finally Garnrin — the ancient who warned of the Towers’ impending destruction — has been found. With Athanasia’s children exhibiting strange new powers and the Mahtma’s influence growing, the Tower Leaders need guidance — but Garnrin isn’t about to just give it away.
When they finally return home, Adicia, Gara, and Tavis are followed by a cohort of centuries-old scholars who, in their younger days, proudly served the Towers. These ancients are shocked by what they find: the Towers they once knew are gone. In their place, self-proclaimed masters struggle with apprentice-level spells and corrupt elders bicker among themselves. Even the Tower Leaders are weak and ignorant of their true roles — and above all this chaos, the Mahatma bides her time. But Adicia will not stand idly by while her Towers crumble. She knows time is running out: beyond the borders, the demon-worshippers of Tenebrosity grow restless, and their corruption may be even closer than it seems Free on Kindle.
