"The scroll and the lever will open the pass together..." Those were the words Zeno, heard in the niche behind the waterfalls.
A midling elf orphan on the streets of Cari City, Zeno keeps to the shadows and lives by the code of her long-dead guardian. But when Zeno bites into a piece of bread given to her by an old beggar woman, she finds a coin of the elven mages long killed off by the Darkthreal Queen of the five city kingdoms.
From the coin, springs forth Revien the green mage, who tells Zeno he is there to serve only her, the old beggar is really a shape-shifting warrior mage named Faely'n, and Zeno is more than just an invisible street wretch-she is the way to finding the five keys to five crown pieces and restoring the five city kingdoms.
Uncertainty takes hold, until Zeno is poisoned by the Queen's flying henchmen and left in a state of delirium with dreams and memories far too sinister to be real.
Unable to tell her dreams and memories from reality, Zeno, Revien, and Faely'n are left to battle Zeno's mind and the Queen's tricks at every dangerous turn as the poison eats away at her. Reaching their first destination is only half the battle. Finding a cure to keep Zeno alive means everything.
