The second age of man ended not with a bang but with the shifting of the earths electromagnetic poles.
The civilization of Atlantis was the epitome of magic use. The gods graced them power, and they used it for everything from farming to warfare. The abuse is so rampant the council makes a monumental decision, to remove it.
They reverse the Earth's electromagnetic poles; stopping the flow of magic, but plunging the world into the stone ages.
Without even simple tools, man rises again to the top. They develop tools and technology to replace the magic they don't remember.
Five thousand years later, the poles right themselves, robbing the world of electricity, but restoring magic.
David's birth is the catalyst for the shift. Magic imbedded in his bones, if only he knew it. With Kaylynn and her bond mate Ambrel, he must simultaneously survive the new threats howling and screeching in the dark, and learn to lead the world out of darkness.
