Echo of the Ages
The tide of years washes over the lands and in its wake civilisations and nations vanish, leaving behind only monuments of past glories, forgotten ruins buried beneath the sands and hidden tombs.
Within them can be found the wealth of the past, by those skilled and lucky, wealth enough for a lifetime. The ruins do not give up their treasures easily though, for often they are guarded by traps and wards.
Kathri, the daughter of exiles and mistrusted for her nature, is one such who plunders the ruins of the past, having both the skill and the luck to survive.
Danger comes from not just from within, as there are rivals who would do whatever it takes to beat her to the treasures, and also the Mages and the Kingdoms of the Ciosalan Conclave that have proclaimed that the Mages alone have the rights to search through the ruins and who punish severely any caught plundering.
It may turn out though that the greatest danger is what lies in the ruins that seeks to get out…
Echo of the Ages is an epic fantasy serial of ruins and ancient magic, of subterfuge and scheming and of a danger that walks unobserved, waiting for the right time to strike.
