The sudden reappearance of a long-dead form of magic forces a young girl to undertake a desperate journey in search of the source of her power. Pursued by dark forces who would claim her magic for themselves, Elena attracts a group of exiles and outcasts to her side as protectors and companions in danger. First novelist Clemens demonstrates considerable skill at combining swift pacing with character development in this gracefully written beginning to a projected high fantasy quest. Suitable for most libraries' fantasy collections.

On a fateful night five centuries ago, three mages made a desperate last stand, sacrificing everything to preserve the only hope of goodness in the beautiful, doomed land of Alasea. Now, on the anniversary of that ominous night, a girl-child ripens into the heritage of lost power. But before she can even comprehend her terrible new gift, the Dark Lord dispatches his winged monsters to capture her and bring him the embryonic magic she embodies.
Fleeing the minions of darkness, Elena is swept toward certain doom--and into the company of unexpected allies. There she forms a band of the hunted and the cursed, the outcasts and the outlaws, to battle the unstoppable forces of evil and rescue a once-glorious empire.
