The Radiants have long ruled the city of Ad-Omaq through their powers as adepts. Yet they are not the only magic wielders in the land. There is an older race, a horned people born of the mountains and drawing strength from nature itself. And to the Radiants, this race is a menace to be eliminated.
What they have not counted on is Shadow, born of both races and gifted with the special abilities of each. Not only must she wield these skills to hold off the Radiants, but also to save herself from the undead who roam the land, hungrily claiming new souls for their ancient and evil master, the Graylord.
Now, with the minions of the Graylord massing for invasion and the leaders of the Radiants forming an unholy alliance that could doom Ad-Omaq, Shadow's struggle to save her land sends her on a desperate quest. She and her ragtag friends must journey to a forbidden realm where she will face a masterful mage with the power to claim her heart â€" and betray her.
