The Known World is a
sprawling region ruled by mortals, protected by gods, and plied by magicians
and warriors, merchants and beggars, royals and scoundrels. Here, those with
the gift of the Erjak share a psychic bond with animals, a
far-reaching fraternity unites criminals of every persuasion in a vast army of
villainy, and upon the mighty river Alt, the dead will one day sail seeking
vengeance on the enemies of their descendants.
But for all the Known
World’s wonders, splendors, and terrors, what has endured most powerfully is
the strange legacy of Ji. Emissaries from every nation—the grand Goranese
Empire; desolate, frozen Arkary; cosmopolitan Lorelia; and beyond—followed an
enigmatic summons into the unknown. Some never returned, others were never the
same. Each successive generation has guarded the profound truth and held sacred
the legendary event. But now, the very last of them, and the wisdom they
possess, are threatened. The time has come to fight for ultimate enlightenment,
or fall to infinite darkness.
