It’s inevitable: technology must evolve alongside magic. The earth wills it. After the Third Holocaust nearly extinguished life on her surface, she yearns for renewal and she hungers to guide mankind to its destiny.
But it may not be ready.
Trained from boyhood to be protectorate of the only known community of survivors, Blaze’s world turns upside down when he fails to protect the Order from an unexpected attack. Then, as he discovers his mentor has turned executioner, finds himself accused of treason while traveling to Moon 514, and falls victim to Toka’s secret gene splicing experiments, Blaze’s troubles seem boundless as space itself.
His life is thrown further into confusion when he learns that his legendary skills in weaponry are useless against the psionic powers of a small alien whose name no one can pronounce – at least, not without two separately functioning vocal chords. And while Evelia, his unquenchable crush, becomes the alien’s unexpected apprentice, Blaze heeds the earth’s call to lead mankind’s last few survivors to the destiny she envisions for them: a technologically advanced civilization governed by magic.
