After the Great War that divided the peoples, the kingdoms of men plunged into a Dark Age that lasted 500 hundred years. To heal the lands and restore the light, the great kings decreed that magic and all that is magical, be it creature, man or device, shall be cleansed to dust.
Three heroes set out on an epic journey of discovery only to find that at the end of their journey nothing is what they thought it was and that is undergoing a transformation that will change everything. Survival in a changing world depends on their ability to adapt and if they fail, their world and everything they believe in will perish.
The first book in the dark path through the history of Ruin Mist. The Ruin Mist Chronicles begin when the Elf Queen sends the warrior elf, Seth, on a journey to the kingdoms. Legend says that the elves and men have been enemies since the dawn of time and there are few who remember the time before the Great War that divided the peoples of Ruin Mist.
Two dozen elves set out from Leklorall, the capital of East Reach. Only two reached the far shores of the great sea. Their names were Seth and Galan and they sided with Great Kingdom during the Battle of Quashan' but success on the battlefield could not undo the past.
