Three years have passed since Thordric joined the Wizard Council. Together, with High Wizard Vey, they have reformed the council completely. But while half-wizards can now train their magic freely and join the ranks of the mages, Thordric realizes that there are many who are completely unaware of this. Traveling to the faraway town of Valley Edge, he meets the young archaeologist Hamlet, who is traveling to a dig site where a new discovery has been made. But not all is as it first appears, and once again Thordric has to put his magic to the test... in order to stop one of the greatest catastrophes their world has ever seen.
