The Wizards war amongst themselves and the clans unite. The Age of Magic draws to its end. The power of the Goddess seeks its vessel. Let the journey begin. Glissenda, daughter of the Clan Chief of the Macowans, keeps her terri-fying and powerful visions a secret from her domineering and controlling father. Even as he celebrates another successful raid, he looks to the future and how his children can help him realize his ambi-tion. With the help of Sareih, a captive Breharan lay priestess, Glissenda flees the marriage her father has arranged and the oppressive world of the clans to find The Green Temple. However, the apparent idyll is only a thin veneer for a darker and more terrifying reality. Her powers are far stronger than anyone expected and her very presence disrupts the staid routines of the Temple. The Priestess Mera sees that Glissenda will soon bear the long awaited Chosen One. Sister Brona is therefore forced to seek the aid of the dy-ing former High Priestess Seyna to train the powerful but ignorant Glissenda.
