The Empire of Andresium is threatened by the corruption of the immortals, ancient beings given the gift of eternal life after the death of the last reigning empress. A prophecy speaks of their eventual downfall at the hands of one of their own, however. Tallis is known by most simply as "The Loren," and seeks to avoid her destiny while trying herself to remain untainted by the decaying morals and indifference to the fates of men that plague her kind. As the events of the prophecy begin to unfold, Tallis finds herself conflicted between upholding her dedication to justice, and falling victim to the ramifications of following the desires of her own heart.
“Sometimes I wish she would have taken the crown back then, if for no other purpose then to order this hideous blight removed.”
Lenu’s words made her gasp. She had not heard him approach. Suddenly, she understood the appeal of this location for their conspiratorial confab. The fountain’s cascade provided a layer of sound that would cover whispers. The distaste the others had for the gaudy figurine keeping aquatic vigil would help ensure that no one stumbled upon them.
Her question did not fall upon befuddled ears. He knew precisely to which she referred. “I cannot say for certain. Most believe it’s true.” Her focus turned on the Cove’s headmaster, who was filled with anxiety.
Juno’s voice quivered as much as her hand. “If indeed she’s promised herself to the mortal, then perhaps she’s not learned as much from her past as she thinks. He will not be pleased.”
“I don’t believe Shahlamin gives a damn.” Lenu crossed his arms over his chest as they both stared into the fountain. “A mortal wizard, even one as talented as Tarameen, poses no threat to him. He owns Tallis’s soul. What does he care who has her heart?”
