"It was a warning," the man said as he laid the girl on the floor, allowing Tea to tend to her wounds. "There was a man there, he said to tell the dragonkin this is only a sample of the power they can unleash. If I didn't have experience of magic myself my sister may not have survived."
"They've been enhanced somehow," Barkeley said. "Elementals are strong but the lightning elemental I faced was shrugging off spells that would've have KO'd an elemental before. We need to find what they've done and stop it."
"You're in no state to fight," Imrik said, shaking his head as he saw how much Barkeley was shaking. "I'll go to Shadow Glade, gather what scouts I can and track them to their source. Could you afford to lend us a dragon or two?" he asked Stormrider, who nodded grimly in response. "Then I will return when I can," Imrik said, jumping into the air and flying away.
"Meren, Seer, look through my father's old library," Stormrider said. "There must be something in there with a clue as to how to fight this."
