After concluding their first year at Lorian Heights, Corin and his friends catch a train from their native Valia to the distant country of Caelford.
For most, this would be a simple vacation. Corin has other plans:
- Meet Anabelle Farren, the eccentric owner of Farren Labs, and learn about artificial attunements.
- Seek out Warren Constantine, a previous Arbiter, for training and a potential alliance.
- Find the visage Ferras herself to seek a cure for Sera’s condition.
Of course, Corin is Corin, and there’s absolutely no chance he’s going to be able to stick to a list. Even if he miraculously developed a sense of focus, he isn’t the only one with plans….
The Blackstone Bandit. Everyone’s favorite mysterious book entity. The aforementioned Farren. A vacationing professor. The mirror of a figure from Keras’ past. When their plots intersect, Corin and his friends are, predictably, stuck at the center.
It’s going to be a long vacation.
