As this tale unfolds and your mind leaves the humdrum drone of everyday life, you will find yourself wandering along a familiar path, where mysterious characters lurk around each bend, where certain danger lingers in every shadow. Indeed, you know this path well—for this is the road to adventure, and you, my young dreamer, have traveled it before.
A SPLINTER IN SORCERY . . .
According to Een legend, a Kazah stone grants a wizard the power to catch an echo of the past—and a glimpse of the future. But when Kendra Kandlestar is given her own cracked and broken Kazah stone, she soon discovers that it’s capable of so much more. Now, with her faithful companion Honest Oki by her side, Kendra is sent on an unimaginable journey across the cosmos, finding herself amidst worlds that are strange and bewildering—and at the same time all too familiar. Trapped in this adventure, Kendra finds herself faced with choices that just may unravel the mysterious history of the Eens—and destroy their future. What will Kendra choose?
