(From the publisher):
Caelum SunSoar was charged with a mighty task: reigning over the land of Tencendor. His father, Axis, the near-immortal Starman who, through prophecy, brought peace to the land, chose to ascend to the heavens with his beautiful consort Azhure and hand the mantle of power over to his most beloved son.
But Caelum is untried, and it is a tenuous peace at best, with the three races of the land - the Icarii bird people, the Avar tree people, and the humans, who for generations controlled (and oppressed) the other two races - existing in an uneasy alliance.
This fragile peace is shattered when an ancient evil beyond the Star Gate breaks through and destroys the Gate. All is undone, and the Time Keeper demons cross over, bringing destruction and madness to the land. With the destruction of the Gate, all the known magic in the world is now gone, and the SunSoar line and all the other Enchanters in the world have lost their power. Caelum and his people flee to the ancient fortress of Star Finger to try to find a way to stop the land from being utterly destroyed.
Any they are not alone in their quest. Farraday, the Starman's first love and protector of the forest, embarks on her own journey to help save the land that she loves. What she discovers will shock her and may tip the balance for all that is good.
For the one who was thought lost might be the missing key to defeating the evil that is ravaging the world. And the savior who was foretold might be found in the most unlikely of places.
