SOON TO BE AN ORIGINAL SERIES ON MTV
Humankind has survived into the distant future—and yet it faces another ancient threat, this time from a sentient book that was brought to life by Demon magic. Once thought to be lost forever, the book has merely been biding its time. And now it has sent forth its monstrous followers to destroy the realm of mortals.
To penetrate this dark army and strike down evil, a new generation of heroes must rise. The call goes out to the children of Wil Ohmsford, wielder of the Elfstones, who have inherited his flair for magic. Although Brin Ohmsford and her younger brother, Jair, have not yet harnessed their powers toward a higher purpose, Brin’s abilities may hold the key to victory. Jair, too, will have a crucial part to play, though neither realizes it. But for now, Brin must leave her brother behind, joining a pair of mighty warriors on a dangerous trek deep into enemy territory, where she finds that magic is an unpredictable weapon . . . and a terrifying burden.
