The Rogue Mage Summary

With all of magic at her command, Alydian is born to power. She and the other oracles serve the people, guiding kings and commoners with their ability to know the future. Yet despite Alydian's power she cannot foresee the coming betrayal, for a rogue mage lurks in their midst, and plots an alliance with the mighty guild of Verinai. Under the guise of benevolence the Verinai offer their magic to all, while their expanding reach is noticed by none.

Except the Soldier.

Branded a traitor, wanted for murder, the mysterious man is no ordinary bandit. For six years he has hidden behind a mask, hunting Verinai with his band of Defiant. But now his war is about to escalate, for he has targeted Alydian to send a message, that even an oracle can be killed. Beset by foes, Alydian will require more than magic to survive, for if she cannot change her future...she will fall to her fate.

    The oracles have always been the guardians of peace. Now they are the heralds of war. After a century of planning, their strike is swift and brutal. In a night of upheaval the kings and queens are cast from their thrones, their kingdoms replaced by a Mage Empire. The people are quick to resist but freedom lies in the hands of an outcast. Hunted by soldiers and assassins, Raiden retreats to a final refuge. As he prepares his last stand an unexpected ally arrives at his door. She may be poisoned, but she is far from powerless.

    Alydian has shattered her prison and returned to the rebellion, arriving in time to ensure victory at Skykeep. The people now look to her as high oracle, but she is haunted by her escape … and the power she has unlocked. She is not alone in hiding the truth. Her enemies have their secrets, but it’s those of her allies that she should fear. With the Empire’s might at her command, Teriah gathers her forces for a final battle, but her plan is more sinister. With the aid of a hidden master, she has prepared a devastating plague, one that will bring the rebellion to its knees.
