Love and romance, fantasy and magic intertwine in Sartorias-deles - lands where kids with remarkable abilities live in extraordinary and ever-evolving times. Stephen Bel Davies, veteran of New York and regional stages, performs Sherwood Smith’s young adult fantasy adventure. Senrid of Marloven Hess, the deposed 15-year-old king, and the villager Liere, who can hear thoughts and perceive deep emotions, both find themselves on the run toward the powerful magic they hope will successfully combat the Norsunder enchanter Siamis’ powers. Although as different as can be, they form a powerful and surprising alliance with other young people and discover for themselves the completely unexpected: the magic of their own friendship.
Siamis said, "Your young friend Liere is not going to enjoy the trap she's walking into, I fear. But you figured that out, did you not? Why didn't she listen to you?" "To snap her fingers under your nose," Senrid retorted. "Irresistible." Siamis smiled gently. "But it's going to cost."
Fifteen-year-old Senrid is newly king of the difficult warrior kingdom Marloven Hess…just in time to lose it, and find himself running for his life with two kids who once were his enemies. When Senrid is captured he overhears a secret - one he can use against the enemy, if he can get to the right place at the right time. Now the enemy is from Norsunder, in the form of a charismatic, handsome man named Siamis who can read minds, and who enchants people just by talking to them.
Liere has always known she was special, which just increased her loneliness and sense of isolation. She can hear others' thoughts, and she senses the real emotions below the facade. When a golden-haired man named Siamis comes to her village and enchants the entire town around her, she finds herself on the run. Liere and Senrid couldn't be more different, but their goal is the same, to locate the powerful magic that will unravel Siamis' world enchantment.
Chased by powerful enemies, Liere and Senrid are tested to the max as they form an alliance of kids to aid them, and gain magical support from surprising sources. Neither ever expected to discover something even more powerful than magic: friendship.
