Sorcery is not to be trifled with. It needs careful guidance, and a life of training to master. When Archenon’s powers show themselves, his mother brings him to another land to seek help. Her choice does not only change Archenon’s path, but endangers the entire world they live in. If Archenon is not careful, he might lose whatever humanity he had as a half breed wild elf. Spells, tragedy, and deceit await in this Elemental Monarchs prequel novelette. This is a short tale about Archenon, and his descent into darkness.
