A weary and frustrated Aspen arrives in Saudi Arabia at the request of scientists from an international conference of deep-sea researchers, but mostly, looking to avoid the scornful eye of the U.S. Government. However, Aspen soon realizes her refuge from the Americans’ concerns has now become a solution for a new groups’ crisis.

Everything you thought you knew about magic will… Vanish.
Journey into a world where the lines between magic and reality are blurred…And where one man will soon find himself as the last remaining hope for all mankind.
Hank, Sudana and Sparkles make their way into the treacherous jungles of Costa Rica in search of the wizard Kon for help. Yet, their journey may end before it even begins when they encounter The Guardians, magical panthers tasked with protecting the temple of Kon—who may or may not be allies to their cause. Inside Kon’s temple, the ancient wizard battles the newly returned Samsun, but the tides of magic power have shifted—and not in his favor. In the Void Realm, Hector and Alle’s capture by a mystical shaman will provide a glimmer of hope to the pair stuck in the hellish landscape of the Void, but will they be able to survive in order to enjoy it?
