Detailed Plot Synopsis of Shadows of Myth



Luna, Jan 2005, 13.95, 400 pp.
ISBN: 0373802129

A woman awakens in a field of corpses with no memory of who she is, where she came from, or how she got there. Archer, a man cursed with immortality, and his friends Giri and Ratha find her and the dead child she is carrying. He takes her to Bandylegs Inn in Whitewater where she recovers her ability to speak and recalls her name is Tess Birdsong. The innkeeper's daughter Sara, Tess, and the three men who found her sense something evil is coming for her.

Winter arrives unnaturally early and the townsfolk go hungry. Tess and her new friends along with Sara's wannabe lover Tom travel together in hopes of learning who she is, but are stunned to find a ghost town whose crops and food supply were poisoned. Rumors are heard that a powerful mage gathers other mages to him so he can harness their power in a quest to conquer the world. He apparently is calling Tess to come to him, but Sara hears him too which means she and Tess are mages as well. The magnificent six knows they must battle the malevolent mage, but remain clueless that beyond this dimension the Chained One uses the evil sorcerer as a puppet for his mysterious malignant purposes.
