The Lochlinleans came to Earth when their civilization was at the edge of collapse and saw their salvation in our past. They used their advanced technology to recreate their world in the image of Earth. 

The Mystery of Magic brings together four United Nations Ambassadors who are invited to travel to Lochlinlea to provide consultative services as the Lochlinleans prepare to advance to the next era of Earth history and introduce new technology. They soon discover that they are part of a prophecy that tells of heroes from another realm that will save Lochlinlea from a terrible evil by taking on the trappings of Lochlinlean citizens--including being granted technological implants that will allow them to manipulate magic. Together they begin their quest to save Lochlinlea and fulfill their true purpose.

Ryan Jonas, Alise Silinis, Nathan Sternberg and Charles Connelly were four United Nations Ambassadors. They were chosen to travel to Lochlinlea to assist the people there to advance their technology. When they arrived they became a holy warrior, a scholar, a locksmith and a magician to blend in with their new surroundings and soon discovered that they would need their newly acquired abilities to both Lochlinlea and Earth. As part of a prophecy that names them as the Heroes of Lochlinlea the four unlikely adventurers must face Xerith as he gathers his forces to destroy Lochlinlea, the ulterior motives of the magician, Nicholas Drinn, who has plans to bring both Lochlinlea and Earth under his control, a Russian Mafioso, Maksimillian Zhukov, interested in the power Lochlinlea can grant him and a multitude of other dangers. 

They must find a way back to each other, learn the truth about magic and stop the evil plots that threaten our world and Lochlinlea before one of their adversaries finds a way to enact their plans. Return to Lochlinlea to learn what has become of the Ambassadors after an explosion left most of them missing and one of them near death.
