3rd book in the series, Robert Newcomb returns with yet another plot within the kingdom of Eutracia.
Tristan his sister Shailiha are the Chosen Ones, long prophesied to unite the opposing magics of the dark Vagaries and the benign Vigors. The destruction of the Gates of Dawn has given the ravaged kingdom of Eutracia the chance to heal - and the Chosen Ones the opportunity to fulfil their destiny.
But Fate would have it otherwise. For there is, it seems, another who unwittingly possesses magic in his blood - a magic that, in the wrong hands, could unleash unspeakable evil. It is imperative that the Chosen Ones find this unsuspecting soul before it is too late.
If you have read the first two books in the series, then hopefully you are accoustom to Robert "pulling a rabbit out of the hat" story line. Once AGAIN the world is in peril, things get really bad, then last minute the wizards come up with a solution and saves the day. Tristan still has not learned any magic and the closest he does to doing so, does not occur until book 4 & 5.
Overall I would say this series serves as a filler if you are bored and nothing better to do.
