Twins Kylie and Karver were born not knowing they were wizards. They discovered this when war threatened the five realms. Their father wizard Drule, who had been living with them as a simple Smith, now had to teach them how to use their gifts. The dragon teaches Kylie, through mindspeak, how to use her magic. They travel through the realms seperately to gather armies from each of the kingdoms. Throughout their journey, past and present meet in constant conflict between characters.
