“Gape at these people and their precious things, now look me in the eye and tell me this is a world not worth destroying.”
– The Master Of Truth And Lies commenting on the human race.
A small black sphere contains all the magic that exists past, present, and future. Without it, two worlds would not survive. The sphere has been protected for centuries by a spell that was believed unbreakable. A common man in the world of magic discovers the spell has been breeched and a small chip of the black sphere has been stolen.
It is thought a piece of sphere so small as to be unseen by the naked eye would be enough crush all mankind. Someone has taken enough to fill the palm of one’s hand and fled from the world of magic into the world of man and only the very common Asa Stonethrow can find him. Asa thought saving two worlds was his great burden, until he meets a girl.
The world we know is at risk because the world we don’t see, the one that makes ours possible, is on the brink of destruction. Marc Silvestri, the co-creator of THE DARKNESS and WITCHBLADE and the creator of CYBER FORCE, presents a new fantasy adventure series set in both worlds in which we live. The Magi are awake and they are legion, and only seven magicians, sorcerers, thieves and killers can stop them. But as Asa Stone will soon find out, among thieves, there is no honor.
