Check out this quick snippet of the prologue:
A long time ago, the lands were new and green, surrounded by the bluest water imaginable. All sorts of plant and animal life flourished on the lands and in the waters. To the First Ones, who came to this land, it was a paradise.
For many generations, the people enjoyed long life and prosperity. Artisans and craftspeople developed unique and beautiful methods for their work and eventually, the lovely lands were known for the wonderful items its people produced.
As the First Ones continued to live in freedom and harmony, they explored the more spiritual side of their beliefs. They discovered that it was possible to reach a state of sublime oneness with all the plants and creatures in their lands and waters. They slowly specialized in these various abilities as they had their arts and crafts. For some, this ability led them to ascend to a higher plane of existence, while others chose to remain in the beautiful lands they loved.
After many, many generations, those who remained found they lived longer than their predecessors. They were able to do more creative tasks with their new abilities, which some considered magic. The people’s appearance changed slightly as they began reflecting these new abilities.
Far beyond their lands, there was rumor of a great lord, who envied the First Ones and their magic. It was said that he was raising an army and that he would take the land and the people, who dwelled there. He also planned to learn the secrets of the plants and animals, believing they somehow held the key to the magical abilities of the inhabitants. He would come and strip the land of everything that made it special, then bring it all back to his own kingdom.
The First Ones could have left and traveled to other places. Some even thought about following the few, who had ascended to the higher plane of existence, but that would do nothing to protect their lands and all that they loved. So, they decided to stay and fight the lord. They had no weapons, no defenses…only their magic.
As the lord arrived, they used their tricks and conjuring to confuse the soldiers and keep them contained to the beaches. After many weeks, the soldiers grew tired of fighting and started to appreciate the beauty of the lands they saw. Many left the lord as he slept, escaping to the lands beyond…and he was forced to start guarding his own men. Those who were loyal to him encouraged the lord to fight one final battle and defeat the magical beings, while they still had enough troops to be victorious.
The lord had brought a lady with him, who was both beautiful and mysterious. She was rumored to be a powerful sorceress and it was said she possessed a magic much darker than any found in this land. The lord asked the lady for a way to defeat the First Ones and let him possess all that they had.
She told him it would cost him everything he desired, but she would do as he asked…
