The Brazen Gambit

Volume 1 - Lynn Abbey
Templar on the Run

Pavek of Urik, templar of Hamanu and lower-level bureaucrat, has grown accustomed to the benefits of his station. Neither aggressive nor rebellious, he accepts his position, follows orders, and doesn't usually ask questions.

Then one day he uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy the permeates all of Urik, even the ranks of his templar superiors, and now he is on the run.

Forced to flee the comforts of his station, Pavek must take to the desert in search of a new way of life and a new system of beliefs, or meet death in the blood-soaked alleys of Urik at the hands of those he used to trust.

The Darkness Before the Dawn

Volume 2 - Ryan Hughes
Psionic Seduction

Jedra lives in the streets, Kayan in the temple. When misfortune throws them together, they discover psionic power greater than almost any other on Athas, a power potent enough to destroy whole cities. When the force proves too strong for them to control, they search for a mentor to help them harness their wild talent and use it for the good of their ravaged world.

The harsh environment conspires against them at every step, but so do their divergent backgrounds. Can a bond forged by necessity survive the cruelty of Athasian society, the savagery of the gladiatorial arena, or the simple test of time?

The Broken Blade

Volume 3 - Simon Hawke
Sorak the Nomad

Sorak had known that discovering his past would come at a price, but he had not guessed the price would be so dear. He learned of his parents, of his slaughtered tribe, of the destiny he bears, but this knowledge came at the cost of the voices that had guided him across the burning sands. For the first time in his memory, he feels alone.

And still more will be lost...

Bearing Galdra, the fabled blade of elven kings, and accompanied by his love Ryana, Sorak sets out on a quest assigned him by the Sage. He seeks the Veiled Alliance in Altaruk, hoping to marshal its forces against a growing circle of defilers. But the legend of the Nomad has preceded him, and the defilers plan an end to the legend, and the Nomad.
