"My lady!"

Elliot rushed over to Maxi and helped her to her feet. Straightening, she glanced around in confusion. It appeared she was not the only one who had been drained of mana. Just a few steps away, Sidina and Anette were also being helped up.

Imbued with mana, the stone sculptures clattered to life and slowly began to move. Immediately recognizing the danger, one of the Temple Knights swung his sword.

Blue flames burst from his blade, blasting the stone trolls charging at them into a thousand pieces. However, like pieces of steel drawn to a magnet, the broken fragments rapidly reassembled.

"We must retreat!" the Temple Knight cried.
