the Enclave

Fantasy Set in an Alternate Renaissance World

“Wizard against sorcerer.  Fae against dragon.  Wyre against Rhoghieri.” 

In the recently-revived war between wizards and sorcerers, the Enclave wizards enlist the aid of Rhoghieri, wielders of the four base elements who live in Havens.  The sorcerers have enslaved wyre, animal shifters who became outcasts when the wizards declared them anathema.

Orielle, sent from the Enclave to renew the alliance with the Rhoghieri in Iscleft Haven, discovers the Wildness is filled with dangerous eldritch creatures: Wyres. Sprites. Gobbers. Cryge--Choosers of the Slain. And all view her as prey.

The Faeron, who withdrew when the dragons were defeated and nearly extinguished from the world, have returned to an uneasy alliance with the wizards—for the dragons did not die out centuries ago.  Those nearly-mythic creatures are searching for a way to return so they can wreck vengeance on the Faeron and the wizards who exiled them.
