Now, years later, Reandn is a Wolf, one of the kings guards, and he is investigating the mysterious disappearance of a young boy from the King's Keep. Reandn doesn't find anything but, while he is searching, he is hit my a roaring in his head that leaves him disoriented. It is later found out that the roaring in his head is an allergy to magic. Someone in Keland has found magic again.
As the story progresses, another boy disappears. Then Travan, the magicians apprentice and Reandn's and Adela's (Reandn's wife) adopted son, disappears. Adela's best friend, Elyn, disappears. Finally, Adela herself disappears. Each time there was a disappearance, Reandn had one of his mysterious bouts of roaring in his head.
When his wife disappears, Reandn finds the evil that is behind the disappearances. Before he can act, he is transported by magic to the far outskirts of Keland where he is left for dead. Magic was supposed to be dead. Reandn meets up with the one woman who believes his story fully, Rethia, who holds the key to the return of magic. But Reandn will do anything to prevent the return of magic to Keland, magic that destroyed his life.
