She must find a way to lead.
Trained to kill from a young age, Gavin Lorren finally escaped that life. No more killing innocents. No more working alone. The jobs are still dangerous, but at least he can choose.
Now an old friend has invited him to the city of Yoran where the work is plentiful. The Roasted Dragon tavern is rough but cozy. The regulars are seedy but welcoming. The owner Jessica is fond of him. It's almost too good to be true.
His good fortune is fleeting. Gavin finds himself facing a new enemy, fast and deadly El'aras warriors—an ancient race with innate magical talent. By the time he learns sorcery is involved, he's in too deep. To succeed, he’ll have to uncover parts of his past that he'd hoped to forget.
It will take an assassin without equal to survive.
It will take the Chain Breaker.
A dark power that attacks Yoran leads Gavin on a dangerous journey.
Gavin remains in Yoran while struggling to master his El’aras abilities. With the power of the strange ring that grants him even more power, he knows he has to learn control, otherwise he’ll destroy the city while trying to protect it.
When the hyadan, creatures of dark sorcery, come to the city, Gavin has to make a choice between staying to learn control over his power or helping Imogen. For him, that’s no choice at all.
Chasing the hyadan leads them deeper into Imogen’s past, and challenges Gavin more than he thought possible. The price of failure is greater than only one city. If he can’t learn to control his El’aras magic—and the power of the ring—the dark power will spread and destroy all magic in the world.
The arrival of a dangerous sorcerer forces Gavin to confront his past.
As Gavin works with the El’aras to master his connection to the ring, he learns of an El’aras prophecy that speaks of the Shard and a Champion.
One must destroy the other.
Though Gavin doesn’t believe in prophecy, he can’t deny that he’s caught up in something greater than he understands—and begins to suspect he’s been guided toward his fate.
The arrival of a powerful sorcerer tests Gavin’s belief. If he can’t stop the Sul’toral, he might have no choice but to fulfill the ancient prophecy and destroy someone he’s come to deeply care about.
Magic is a part of the world. Now the First of the Blade must master it.
Having saved her people from the danger of the branox, Imogen must find a way to lead them home. The way back is treacherous and there’s an ever-present threat of more dark creatures attacking.
When hunted by a new threat, the sacred patterns are not enough. Imogen must find a way to bring her people together while staying on the path the Porapeth have seen for her, but even that might not lead her to safety.
The First of the Blade must be more than a sacred sword master. If she can’t unlock potential hidden deep inside her, all her people will fall.
Strange fires threaten to destroy the city of Nelar that Jayna alone can’t stop.
After stopping a powerful dark sorcerer, Jayna finds herself a target. Not only does the Sorcerers’ Society think she uses dark magic, the Celebrants of Asymorn want vengeance for her interference. She’d leave the city, Ceran has shown her that something worse is still to come.
When it does, she’s still unprepared.
Nearly killed by a strange fire even her dark magic could not extinguish, she needs to find those responsible before the city is destroyed—or worse, plunged into war.
Even stopping the fires might not be enough. The dark sorcerers have begun to move, and Jayna might need to surrender to her magic in order to stop them.
