Three princesses endowed with the awesome powers of the Trillium Talismans.  Haramis is devoted to the study of magic and science; Anigel and her husband King Atar govern their provinces with love; Kadiya is still wild, impetuous and careless.  Then Kadiya loses her Talisman in the deep waters off the Windlorn Isles and Anigel’s husband and children are kidnapped by the mysterious sorcerer Portolanus, who demands Anigel’s Talisman as ransom.  The world begins to lose balance.  Storms rage and war looms.
