To understand history, you must first relive it…
Look, but don’t touch….
Combine an ancient tome, a potion, and a mage, and what do you get? A journey back in time, the secret dream of every historian ever born. Of course there is the usual catch, the well-known non-interference clause. But what price too high to gain the greatest perspective on the events of the past a person could have?
Witness the construction of the citadel and the reign of the first mages—Sethwyn, Glinrea, and Wystan. Learn of their battle against the evil bastard vampire who was Elusivar. Gone, maybe… Forgotten? Not likely, not with the terror he wrought indelibly etched into the pages of history.
When science goes mad, three humans escape the cruel scientists who have performed unholy experiments upon them. Free from tyranny, their powers begin to develop and the three—Justinus, Saberine, and Leandra—form a triumvirate, the Second Reign. But much as the Roman triumvirate of ancient times, this one too may be doomed to failure due to overweening hubris.
Do I stay or do I go? Does the opportunity to be a silent witness come with a price? What part does 001 have to play in what is going on? Will understanding the past give insight into a better future?
Tick tock, the beating clock… time waits for no man…
