Before The Burning City there was…
The Trials of Blood
Malisyn and Allyn are orphans who live in the small village of Tor’vic, on the borders of the mysterious Glass Plains. Their lives are simple: avoid chores and try to find a way to leave the orphanage. Malisyn dreams of being a Blood Mage and Allyn, a sword wielding Guardian. Their lives change forever when they stumble upon the body of murdered child…
When the leader of the Blood Mages suspects a demon is on the loose, he calls for The Trials of Blood: a large scale test for anyone who believes they have the ability to cast magic. Malisyn and Allyn see their way out of the orphanage: to participate in the Trials. Will they survive the dangerous Trials of Blood to discover if they have magic? Or will they die trying?
Or will the demon hunt them down before the Trials even begin?
