Moontide Magic Rise Series : Titles in Order

Book 2
The second book chronicling the epic fantasy adventures of naturalist Tristram Flattery as he voyages to discover the lost history of magic in a world where reason and science reign

The secrets of the Mages had been lost with the passing of Erasmus Flattery, a man of Talent who had served the last known Mage. It seemed to be the dawn of a new era—a time of reason, science, and exploration. And Tristam Flattery, Erasmus’ nephew, was one of its most promising young naturalists.

Sent by the palace on a voyage halfway around the world, Tristam finds himself led by a mysterious white bird—which may be the ghost of his uncle’s familiar—to a remote island in the middle of a vast ocean, where the natives have clearly been awaiting his coming. And it soon becomes all too obvious to Tristam that his course was set by no living man.

Lost in a land of legend, surrounded by a world which defies his rational beliefs, Tristam comes to realize that he has inherited more than he thought from his illustrious uncle. Now the fate of his world lies on his shoulders—for it will be up to him to decide whether to open a dangerous door which has long been closed, or keep that magical gateway forever locked.

The Age of the Mages is over, and all the secrets of their magical arts are thought to be lost to the world.

There are even those who suspect that the last of the great Mages spent their final years scrupulously eradicating all traces of their craft from the pages of history—insuring that their art will never be practiced again.

It is the dawn of a new era: an age of reason, science, and exploration, and Tristam Flattery is one of its most promising young naturalists.

But when Tristam is summoned to the royal court of Farrland to try to revitalize a failing species of plant which seems to have mysterious, almost magical, medicinal properties—a plant without which, he is told, the aging king will surely die—he soon realizes that he has been drawn into the heart of a political struggle which spans generations, a conflict which threatens the very foundations of his civilization. And before long, Tristam is caught in the grip of a destiny which will lead him to the ends of the known world—on a voyage of discovery that has more to do with magic than with science….
