Eras is the youngest Archmage in history. Her power and skills with magic are unheard of. Still, even with all her power, can an eighteen year old girl really live up to the station of Archmage?
When she falls into a whirlwind romance with a devilishly handsome young man from Zal, will she have the strength to save him from the darkness to come?
There are things in the world that Reality itself refused to acknowledge. Things that even Eras, with all her perfect scores from the academy has no knowledge of. What will happen when one of these Forgotten creatures threatens to take away everything the young Archmage holds dear?
“Eras, I read the book.” Roth was solemn as he spoke but he hugged Eras back just as tightly.
“So what? I forgive you. We can move past this.”
Roth sighed. “It’s more complicated than that. You have a Forgotten One inside you. I’ve seen it with my own eyes now. I will not let you become one of those creatures.”
Eras shook her head violently. “No it’s not true! I feel perfectly fine.” Eras was clinging tightly now, her knuckles turning white.
“Eras, I love you and I promise I will find a way to save you but right now I need some time to think.”
Eras shook her head again. “When will you listen to me!? I don’t need saving!”
Roth gently pulled her away from him and held her shoulders at arm’s length. “I wish I could believe that but I’ve seen things now that I’ll never be able to forget. Visions of creatures the world was right to forget about. Please just trust me. I need some time.” Hot tears began to roll down Eras’ face as she shook her head again.
“What do you mean? You’re not leaving are you?!” Thunder rumbled in the distant darkening sky and the first drops of rain began to fall.
“I don’t know yet. But please give me some time to think.” Eras’ tears began to fall in large heavy drops and the rain followed her example. Long minutes passed with only the sound of the rain to drown away the silence. Roth let go of her shoulders and stared out over the city. Eras could control herself no longer and ran down the stairs, her tears falling without restraint.
