The Dictator is dead; long live the Republic.
But whose Republic will it be? Senators, generals, and
elemental mages vie for the power to shape the future of
the city of Aven. One such mage, Latona of the Vitelliae,
must re-discover her incredible powers of Fire and Spirit—
which she suppressed for years at the Dictator’s court—in
order to protect her family and the city she loves. Her
siblings—a widow who conceals a canny political mind in
the guise of a frivolous socialite, a young prophetess
torn from the sanctuary of her temple, and a military
tribune leading a dangerous expedition in the province of
Iberia—will be her allies as she builds a place for
herself in this new world, against the objections of their
father, her husband, and the strictures of Aventan
Their paths intersect with that of Sempronius Tarren, a
rising politician who dreams of a vast and harmonious
empire growing from the nexus of their beloved city. He
believes the gods have thrown down a personal challenge,
and equipped him with the skills to steer Aven towards
this glorious future—but in order to realize his goals, he
will have to break the Republic’s most sacred law.
Although centuries-old custom dictates that no mage may
hold the highest political offices, Sempronius, a Shadow
mage who has kept his abilities a life-long secret,
intends to do just that. As rebellion brews in Iberia,
Sempronius must outwit the ruthless leader of the opposing
Senate faction to claim the political and military power
he needs to achieve his—and Aven’s—destiny.
As Latona unleashes her magical potential, she discovers
that Sempronius’s extraordinary vision for their nation
aligns with her desires to protect its people—but their
burgeoning relationship may jeopardize the very future
they seek to build in Aven.
