From the publisher:
Nine ancient Teleportation Towers link the swamps surrounding Kith’takharos. Abandoned by the lost reptilian race of Harlass Orn, the towers remained undiscovered by outsiders…until now.
The Harlass Orn vanished over a thousand years ago. The survival of Kith’takharos depends on the fading magic and strange plants scavenged from Harlass Orn ruins. One man now threatens the tenuous prosperity wrested from the swamp by three generations of settlers.
The ruthless archaeologist-mage Lenar Hoyt has stolen the most holy artifact of the Bright Water Swamp Men. The tribe holds Kith’takharos responsible, and will destroy the village unless the Order of the Jade Leaf retrieves Tarshal’din’s Shining Spear. As the Swamp Man warriors gather for the assault, Hoyt activates the first Teleportation Tower.
