This discounted ebundle includes: Legacies, Darknesses, Scepters
Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a great worldwide civilization, the end of a golden age. New civilizations have fought their way up from the ancient destruction and chaos, knowing little of the lost world that preceded them or the details of its fall. Corus today is a world of contending countries, of humans, but also of strange animals and supernatural creatures. It is a place of magical powers, and of a few people who are talented enough to use them.
Legacies — Alusius is drafted into the local Militia to fight against the invading slave armies of The Matrial, an immortal ruler in a nearby land. If the evil surrounding The Matrial is not brought to an end, the world as he knows it could very well end.
Darknesses — Captain Alusius faces new challenges, both military and magical. A would-be conqueror has revived sorcerous creatures of legend to assist in his crusade to reunite the continent under his rule. Alucius's Talent is the only hope against this foe, or even survival.
Scepters — Alusius must quell a strange religiously-inspired rebellion and then find a way to destroy the powerful weapons of ancient design. When a different, covert enemy threatens, only the timely assistance of the ancient Soarers, and the addition of his wife Wendra's Talent, gives him any hope of success.
