An epic! six-hundred and six pages of engrossing reading.
" The Age of the Mages is over and all the secrets of their magical arts are thought to be lost to the world. There are even those who suspect that the last of the great mages spent their final years scrupulously eradicating all traces of their craft from the pages of history--insuring that their art would never be practiced again.
But when Tristram Flattery is summoned to the royal court of Farrland to try to revitalize a failing species of plant which seems to have mysterious, almost magical, medicinal properties--a plant without which, he is told, the aging king will surely die--he sonn realizes that he has been drawn into the heart of a political struggle which spans generations, a conflict which threatens the very foundation of his civilization."

Something like novels based in 19th century natural history, but with the twist of being set against a not-quite extinct age of magic preceding this new age of reason.
