In the world of Gaia magic falls from the sky. The powerful Solarin manipulate heat and light to destroy their enemies. The cunning Lunarin use their mastery of water and ice to rule the seas. And the varied Stellarin make pacts with the beings that live in the stars to further their agendas. For two thousands years the Solarin of the Oro Empire have suppressed all other forms of magic, venerating the most powerful of their number of as God-Emperor. But five years ago a lone Stellarin killed the Emperor and decimated the ranks of his Solarin. Now the Empire teeters as four characters attempt to navigate this new world. A son attempts to escape the shadow of his father. A child attempts to do good in a world that seems to grow ever more complex. And a young woman attempts to navigate a tangled web of loyalites without betraying who she truly is.
