The Holy Land, and the Last Knights with it, has fallen to the Union, and the people of Varite find themselves with a new-found peace--until the Grand Master of the Last Knights, Casiodorus de Noa, curses the Union with his final breath during a public execution. The people of Varite must now choose if they wish to continue worshipping the lunar mystique of the Watcher, or take up faith in the solar fury of the Sentry . . .
The rebirth of the Calixtinian League's forgotten values has brought prosperity to the Union, as well as the yearning for adventure that had been lost for a thousand years. Trapped within a rigid caste system, the people of Varite are captivated by tales of Hammulin, a wonderland said to have been lost thousands of years ago. The uncertain road to that paradise is one paved with glory and riches, romance and adventure, heartache and triumph--with paths being crossed, alliances forged and institutions shattered. Be it the Watcher or the Sentry guiding lost souls to Hammulin, the ships have already left the harbor.
In a fantasy world like no other, A Waking Phoenix is the opening act to not another medieval saga, but a tale that captures the spirit of the Renaissance. There are no white knights, wizards and dragons; only artists and playwrights, bishops and cardinals, dukes and duchesses, alchemists and polymaths, explorers and conquistadors.
