Tomorrow’s light burns brightly in the wake of today’s shadow…
With the passage of time, Earth begins to heal, beginning with the land. So different than the last time, when life began in the sea. Shadow’s twins, Morgan and Michaela, have come a long way, but their paths have diverged. Making her home in the mountains, Michaela is air and dragon, while on the coast, Morgan is water and leviathan. Morgan is drawn to The Old Writings, to tales of mages, black and white and gray. He seeks to gain the respect for the black mages which they’ve never had… and he wishes to create life. If he can do that, he believes he can become a deity and earn the respect long denied him.
Shadow is unexpectedly drawn into a situation she cannot control, and only the aid of Ghost keeps her from certain death. But to the others, she has simply vanished. Her disappearance hits Dodger hard, and he leaves everyone behind, including his oldest friend, Raz. In the wake of Dodger’s leaving, Raz discovers his own destiny, the balance that must be maintained, and he doesn’t shirk in doing his duty.
Morgan’s anger—and his overwhelming desire to create life—threaten the future of a world that is trying to heal and move on. Is the past doomed to be repeated? Has mankind learned nothing? Is all lost, or will a savior arise to save Earth from destruction?
