Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?…If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!

Imaen, a disillusioned, bitter priestess, is forced to accompany her mentor into the icy swamps to learn why the spirits walk and to help put them to rest again. But when her mentor is attacked and slain by one of these spirits, Imaen must find the courage and the faith she needs to solve the mystery on her own. If she fails, the evil behind the outbreak could claim her soul as well, leaving her a forlorn spirit wandering through the mists of Blackfen Bog.

Senda shook his head. He couldn’t deny what Lucian said. “People were afraid, they didn’t know how to react…”
Senda stood rooted to the spot, watching the bald Mystic, Anali, lead his Lord to his bedchamber. He couldn’t hear what Anali whispered to Lucian, but Anali turned and grinned.
Dear Spirits, what have I done? The man’s feral grin worried Senda. It was clear to him that Lucian was different, though up and moving. He knew he should be happy that his Lord was well.
