In the years that came before the long-ago ancient days of the North-lands, a brilliant inventor fabricated the lodestones – powerful artifacts that concentrate magical force.
And while men and women walk the earth but a short while, the lodestones persist through centuries and millennia. When they fall into the hands of mortals, history changes.
Follow the lodestones down through the ages as adventure follows adventure, and ordinary folk rise to do extraordinary deeds.
Skies of Navarys • Lodestone I • Lies twine with legend in the earliest mists of time.
When the king’s geomancer announces that a tidal wave threatens Navarys – the Atlantis of the North-lands – every citizen on the island springs to action. Amidst the uproar, the aeromancer Palujon steals unique and magical lodestones.
Mago, son of the lodestones’ creator, vows to retrieve his father’s precious artifacts. But Mago’s friend Liliyah questions Palujon’s motives.
Why would a man of his stature break the law? Is he truly a dastard? Life and death hang on her answers.
