In a land torn asunder by forbidden magic, four friends hold the key to saving the realm… or destroying it.
Jayson, Jack, and Leo never imagined wandering through the woodlands of Ohio could cause them to be whisked away to a fantasy world – but that’s exactly what happened. Trapped within the world of Chartile, a land on the brink of ruin, they have no clue how to wield their newfound and outlawed magic, let alone save a kingdom. With their new friend, Piper, they discover an ancient prophecy which may be the realm’s last hope. And if the prophecy is to be believed, Jayson, Jack and Leo are the reincarnated souls of Chartile’s ancient kings, their return long ago foretold to right the wrongs of the land. With an Elven Princess bent on taking every last bit of Chartile as her own, and a Dwarvik society on the brink of civil war, these friends must come together to save the realm, or risk losing everything. It’s safe to say, getting home is the least of their problems.
The elven palace was at the heart of the Belirian Forest, hidden, as it were, in plain sight. If a traveler were unfortunate enough to lose their way, they might find themselves in the middle of the palace gardens, and then quite suddenly set upon by the palace guards. The palace was made from the very forest itself. The branches were expertly woven together through the centuries, creating a lattice that formed a highly domed ceiling. The largest tree in the palace was also the oldest. It sat in the center of the throne room and made up the throne of the Elven King.
