The Veritus wizard is cursed with dreamless sleep—but in return can harness great power without the need for written spells and writs—as the vast majority of the populous require. When Jarek is forced into his first dream, it reveals to him that a terrible power was stolen from the past and is about to be unleashed to ravage human flesh—and inadvertently awaken three ancient, human weapons that will thrust the world into a dark, magicless time of war and oppression—and that time lies just over the horizon.
The tangle that has formed in the threads of time is only able to be remedied by aid of the Atlas of Infinity—a phantom book said to not even exist. A book that is to be the only item of magic still functioning when the worst of the Weapons is raised: the NEVERMINDING. The devourer of magic that will be awoken from its eons of slumber to rip magic from the world and leave humanity defenseless against weapons so powerful, the Gods themselves could not destroy them.
