Volume One, Book One of the Sanctum of the Archmage Saga
“This society is decadent beyond redemption. It is time for it to be purged in fire and rebuilt from the ashes.”
The royal family of Carlissa struggles to guide their land into a new age of enlightenment. But when a radical professor of magic is targeted for heresy by the Inquisition, they end up caught in the crossfire. And when that violent confrontation spawns political infighting in the kingdom, it leads to the return of a dark and ancient threat thought lost to the legends of time.
Prologue to Chaos is the first of three books in Dawn of Chaos, the first volume of the Sanctum of the Archmage Saga. It continues in Hell Gate, a four episode series released in 2021 by Andarian Publishing. Hell Gate 1: The Return of the Horde is available here.
