The granite of the mountain gives eternal life to the nobility. The price: the separation of the soul from the body, for only spirits are immortal… Count Golar sets off on the journey that everyone assumes will be his last. He is expected to leave the world behind him at the age of 50 and go into the mountain. Once more he wants to see the beauty of forests, meadows and rivers. He is accompanied by the painter Quilûn, whose paintings are intended to bring comfort to the caverns that no spirit can leave.
But the journey is dangerous. Insurgent and hostile empires want to break the power of the mountain. And also in the native palace the intrigues begin around the succession on the count’s throne – because if the count gives up his body, the husband of his only daughter will inherit. And she is still unmarried… In this reading with audience discussion Robert Corvus presents his novel Berg der Macht (Mountain of Power) on MagicCon 5.
