The story starts out simple enough; adventurers seeking
wealth. Only, some of the would-be adventurers have quite different things in mind; spurred
on by a past meeting with a mysterious gold-skinned fortune-teller, they seek a fate
that will bring them up against the most notorious evil ever to exist. They are
virtual innocents in the eyes of the world, though soon to find out the way the world
really works or die trying.
Miro is a legendary evil, perhaps man perhaps part god, no one
really knows. All that is known is that stories of him go as far back as any
civilization and that he still lives, plotting for a conquest that only he can
fully know of.
No amount of force can seem to thwart Miro, no mind can out-plot him,
and yet it may be up to these adventuring innocents to set the seeds for the
final battle against such a vile evil.
Or were they the seeds that someone else long ago set? Someone
perhaps planning their own designs against Miro, long these many centuries…
Humor, adventure, magic, eccentric characters, and plot twists
and turns enough to keep you guessing from one volume to the next. Maldene has it all and more, for
the first book is not the last but only the beginning of a plot that will enthrall you.
