An age has passed, a blight curses the land, and one hero stands above the rest to restore the balance. Verdan Blacke is an Imperial Wizard, a researcher by preference but soldier by necessity.

Surviving an intense battle, Verdan is cursed by a hex witch in her final moments. Without any good options, Verdan escapes the ever-increasing pain the curse inflicts by performing a self-made stasis ritual. When the spell fades, and he has awoken, Verdan finds a world completely different from the one he left behind. Dark things work in daylight with impunity, once common knowledge is a mystery, and even the nature of magic that humans use has changed.

Pickwick Review

A wizard awakes from a self imposed sleep to find thousands of years have passed and much of the magical knowledge from his time has been forgotten. This new world is a lot darker and he sets out to right the wrongs he finds. It’s a fun series with good pacing but not exactly treading completely new territory.
