Long ago the people of Atlaua knew war and disease but one of their priests born with Psipower attracted the attentions of the S'hazons. They left their corporeal bodies long ago and are now beings of light and energy that can travel to different dimensions. They gave humanity the ability to abolish war and heal the sick. They set up the House of Lohenrin where initiates study the power and if they are good enough go on to become preceptors and masters.

Since her mother's death, the only thing that Elinna has ever wanted to do is enter the House and learn the ways of healing. When Elinna goes to be tested, it becomes obvious she has Psi power in abundance and is accepted into the house where she studies hard to become a preceptor and then a Master. While she is busy study the old religion regains power and turns against the S'hazons, saying they are using humanity for their own purposes. Elinna discovers some truths about the S'hazons that startle her and she must discover their true intent for her first loyalty is to Atlaua, not the demigods she once revered.
