Wards and Wonders
by Kay L. Ling
Not long ago, the gnomes’ gem master queen was overthrown and then enchanted to make sure she could never regain her powers. Now, she lives in a cage, guarded by those she once ruled, and her enchanted form disgusts all who look upon her.
When Tyla moved to Elantoth Fortress, she came as a librarian and researcher. As a novice gem user, she hopes to develop her powers, using the former queen’s gems. She didn’t expect to be drawn into a struggle to keep the queen from being moved to a faraway city where sympathizers might restore her to her true form. And she certainly didn’t expect to befriend one of the queen’s personal servants, a mutant kitchen worker with a unique ability to sense dark powers and a knack for getting into dangerous adventures.
