Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a great civilization that spanned a continent. Corus today is a world of contending countries, of struggling humans, strange animals and elusive supernatural creatures. Though much has been forgotten, it is still a place of magical powers, but only a few people are Talented enough to use them. Alucius is one of those people. Now, Corus is changing again, with the evil forces of the Matrial invading, and Alucius and his Talent will have a central role to play.
The Corean Chronicles follow the adventures of reluctant hero Alucius and other Talented heroes throughout Corus’ troubled history.
