Mages & Rebels
Tales of the Northern Kingdoms: Book 2
set around same time as Wyld Magic, DM1/LT Shorts
After the evacuation of the East, King Oliver sealed off what little was left of the land in a desperate attempt to keep the Shades confined. The ship of mages from the southern continent arrives to help in any way they can, and after a prolonged battle they dispatch the spirits back to the afterlife. Driven by their need to experiment, the elves use a combination of science and magic to find a way to bring back those lost to the Shades. They get far more than they bargained for, however, and the kingdom of Oakshire may never be the same again.
