The first great war of Ovira is over, and the most hated king in centuries is dead, but his nephew still lives. However, Basen had nothing to do with the destructive war his uncle started. In fact it was his uncle who exiled him and his father to the territory of their enemies, where Basen's dreams of becoming a legendary mage now fade, as he must work all day just to eat. His only chance at regaining some semblance of the life he thought he would lead is to join an elite school that trains, houses, and feeds a thousand new young men and women each year. But little does Basen know that his determination will put him at the center of a war even bloodier than the one he'd barely managed to avoid.

For many young mages like Basen, the Academy is more than just a place to learn the art of manipulating energy. It has become the only sanctuary in this unbalanced war, a symbol of resistance. But the Academy can't stand up to Tauwin's army much longer. As Basen and a group of allies take on the task of recruiting troops from other territories, he soon comes to find that no one is stupid enough to fight...no one except a fearsome horde of creatures more powerful and violent than they are smart. Basen begins leading them back to the Academy, only to realize there's a good reason humans have kept away from these creatures for centuries. On the other hand, Tauwin has problems of his own. His benefactor in this war arrives in Kyrro to claim what he was promised in exchange for his support: half of the territory. Sanya quickly assumes this benefactor to be the opportunity she needs to fix everything that has gone wrong in her life, planning to gain his trust and turn him against Tauwin by informing him of Tauwin's lies. But soon, she'll discover that this masked man, who's come to Kyrro with his own army, is even more dangerous than he appears.

A midnight attack to the Academy leaves a wall in rubble and deepens the cracks in the already unstable alliances within the school. But for Basen, there are more important matters than the grabs for political power going on around him. His mother's still rotting away in prison, and his father might kill Basen's cousin for putting her there. On top of that, Basen's recent promise to a powerful psychic allows him only a few days before he must return to Merejic for a task that remains a mystery. Determined to free his mother and turn his obligation to the psychic into an opportunity, Basen comes to a risky plan in which he'll need the help of those he trusts the most. But little does he know that his friends and family won't be enough to get him out of this alive. He will have to rely on an enemy more powerful than himself.
