In a single night, the old Wizard's Council was overthrown. In that one battle most of the wizards were slain.
But rumor said a powerful member of the old council survived.
Everyone waited. Nothing happened.
For two centuries the counter-revolution has slept. All that remaines of the old council is a mysterious blue jewel, and the specter of a young girl wandering the island of Seamount. The girl, Glory, believes she is more than a left over weapon from that long ago wizard's war. Glory is sure she is human, has a body, and a purpose.
It is just that she has no memory of them.
Then one of the original rebels steals the jewel. The effort to recover it reunites Glory's mind with her magic and her memory.
Now, centuries late, the counter-attack is coming.
And it is coming like an avalanche two hundred years in the making.
