Elena Amell had been part of the Circle of Magi since she was ripped away from her family at the age of six. Now, after fourteen years of vigiourus study, she is becoming a promising mage with the help of her friend Jowan. Elena knows her place in the tower-mostly because if she didn't she'd be cruely punished by the ever present templars-but there was still a part of her that wanted to travel. Annria Mahariel is an elven apprentice who was dragged to the circle after she witnessed the brutal murder of her mother and killed a great number of men in the Arl of Denirum's estate five years ago at the age of fifteen, and ever since, she had trouble trusting humans. Even so, Annria had always found it interesting how Elena-First Enchanter Irving's star pupil-could be so friendly towards her when it's already obvious she is aware of what she had done. This is the story of two girls who must save their country from the dreaded Blight. One will become a famed Grey Warden and one will follow close behind as the two fight against the Blight, an impending civil war, and not to mention the archdemon before Fereldan falls.
