The Revenants are coming.Â
Only recently woken from their centuries’ long slumber, the dragons are unprepared to face them. But when a legend is uncovered, revealing the existence of a lost tribe of mages, hope flickers to life.Â
The race is on as Tyler Durand and Anwen Kaida rush to find this missing tribe while the others prepare for their last stand. But time and numbers are against them, and Anwen fears that even if they find the lost mages, it will be too late.Â
Walter looked between the two, watching the invisible sparks fly. Leslie was a force to be reckoned with, but she was no match for Tyler. â€œYou know,â€ he commented, â€œI would pay to watch you and Anwen have a go at each other.â€
Anwen gave him a dirty look. â€œReally? What happened to being my friend? I thought you were on my side.â€
The veteran shrugged, aware that the others had turned their attention to him as well. â€œOh I am. I just think it would be interesting to watch. In fact, Iâ€™d pay good money for that opportunity. Youâ€™re not going to improve unless you can go against someone whoâ€™ll test your skills. Why not her?â€ He pointed his thumb at the Walker.
â€œAre you kidding me?â€ Anwen balked. â€œSheâ€™d make mincemeat of me! Even Courtneyâ€™s better at this whole mage thing than I am! And you want me to go up against the best person in this place? Are you insane?â€
Walter only smiled as he folded his arms across his chest as he made himself comfortable. â€œYou want to learn your craft? I canâ€™t think of any better way. Margo would say the same thing. You know she would.â€
Anwen shook her head. â€œCan you please leave my mother out of this? We all know she was an overachiever who pushed everyone to their limits. I really donâ€™t need this right now.â€
