When Master Sorcerer Badec realizes that his unborn son, Myron, will be his one and only heir, he protects the child from his enemies by arranging for him to grow up on Earth. Myron is scheduled to be returned to Terah on his twenty-fifth birthday, at which time he'll learn who he is and begin to study magic as well as everything else he'll need to know in order to assume his role as Terah's next Master Sorcerer, the highest human-held position on Terah.
For twenty-three years, things go as planned, and Myron goes about his life as Kevin, a typical nerd, who is more comfortable with computers than with people. Then Badec becomes quite ill and the decision is made to bring his son home early.
One morning Kevin is an accountant living and working in Omaha, and the next he is in the middle of a field with six complete strangers, surrounded by huge stones and a forest. Before the day is out, Kevin learns that he is actually a sorcerer named Myron and that he's next in line for the Master's Chair. While he's still reeling from that bit of information, he finds out that due to his father's illness, he has a little less than one year to learn enough about sorcery to be able to defend his life and chair against sorcerers who have been practicing their craft longer than he's been alive. Fortunately for Kevin, arrangements have been made for Glendymere, the most powerful sorcerer on Terah, to tutor him.
The other people from Earth, who were chosen primarily for their lack of close ties to anyone else on Earth, range in age and profession from a retired teacher to a college sophomore. They were brought over to accompany and protect Kevin as he travels a thousand miles by horse and wagon to reach Glendymere and then another thousand miles to reach his father's castle in Camden. Armed with swords and knives, the group sets out, with only the slightest mention of the assassins and bounty hunters who are already searching for Myron, and absolutely no mention that Glendymere is a dragon.
