The Larion spell table has been dormant for nearly a thousand Twinmoons. It waits in a forgotten chamber in Sandcliff Palace, the abandoned Larion Senate stronghold on Eldarn''s North Sea. The spell table holds the power to see the people of the 5 lands safely through the oppression and brutality that have haunted them for generations, but without Lessek''s key it is a worthless slab of granite. Unfortunately for Steven Taylor--the would-be sorcerer from Colorado--he overlooked the nondescript key the night he fell through the far portal into Eldarn. Now Steven must race across American to retrieve the key and free Eldarn''s people rests, but Nerak--the fallen Larion dictator--is hot on his heels. If he fails, the lives of untold millions will be lost forever.
