The Door to the Lost
Talhaven used to run on magic, but since it lost it’s connection to another magical world, the place where the two worlds used to be connected has been poisoned. Just before the gate between the two worlds closed a skyship full of magical children came through all with no memories of their homes. Exactly what Talhaven wanted, because now everyone hates magic.
Rook and Drift are two of the orphans from the ship. Talhaven doesn’t trust magic anymore, because magic doesn’t just die, it decays, twists, and poisons all it touches and now that poison is going after people.
While Rook and Drift can’t remember anything about their life before Talhaven they may be the only ones who are able to save their adopted new world, if that world doesn’t destroy them first.
