as the techno-mages come face-to-face with the
devastating evil of the Shadows ...
War against the Shadows is inevitable, and the ruling Circle has ordered the techno-mages into hiding. Many are unhappy with this decision - none more so than Galen, the only mage who has faced the Shadows and lived. But the Shadows aren't Galen's only enemy - he is driven to hunt and kill Elizar, the traitor who murdered the beautiful mage Isabelle while Galen stood hopelessly, his hands tied by the Circle's sacred code he had sworn to follow.
Now a new mission awaits as the Circle contrives a plan that may enable the five hundred mages to escape without leaving a trace. Dispatched to the Shadow's ancient capital to uncover the enemy's plans, Galen will find everything he so desperately seeks - including a shocking legacy that threatens to consume his very soul.
- The book refers to the techno-mages' passenger liner at Babylon 5 as the Crystal Cabin. In the episode "The Geometry of Shadows", it was actually called the Crystal Cavern, a reference to the place where the wizard Merlin slept after being put into an enchanted sleep by Nimue.
