Shadow of a Memory
Leila Orwald, a gifted sorcerer, inexplicably loses her formidable power. Her only hope is to journey to the volcanic plains of Teufelwald, a dreaded country filled with the warlike, demonic Teufel. As Leila pieces together her forgotten past, she struggles to survive and to adapt to a foreign culture that goes against everything she holds dear.
Flustered, I cast my gaze to the obsidian floor as I scoured my mind, trying to retrieve my lost memories. Recognition tugged at the edges of my consciousness before it vanished.
"So, what does this mean?" I asked the Prince with a defiant glare. "Who am I?"
The noble gazed at me with a mixture of longing and disappointment. "You're nothing but a shadow of a memory. A mirage. An empty shell. But one day, you might recover your true self."
Follow Leila Orwald on her journey towards self-discovery, friendship, and love as she unlocks the key to her past and reclaims her future. Venture through vibrant forests, dark calderas, and magical worlds. Will she stay true to her sorcerer roots, or will she fall prey to the demonic people of Teufelwald?
