The Mages of Winding Circle Temple set out on adventures in the wider world...Tris is a storm mage, with the power of lightening at her fingertips. When the city of Tharios is shaken by a series of murders, Tris is shocked by how little the city-fathers seem to care. Equally disturbing is the discovery of a mage who is unaware of the magic he's working. Keth was struck by lightening once, and is convinced he is useless as a mage. Can Tris unravel his powers and find the killer before it's too late?
