Product description

Haunted by the loss of his mother and sister, Han Alister journeys south to begin his schooling at Mystwerk House in Oden's Ford. But leaving the Fells doesn't mean that danger isn't far behind. Han is hunted every step of the way by the Bayars, a powerful wizarding family set on reclaiming the amulet Han stole from them. And Mystwerk House has dangers of its own. There, Han meets Crow, a mysterious wizard who agrees to tutor Han in the darker parts of sorcery-but the bargain they make is one Han may regret. Meanwhile, Princess Raisa "ana"'Marianna runs from a forced marriage in the Fells, accompanied by her friend Amon and his triple of cadets. Now, the safest place for Raisa is Wein House, the military academy at Oden's Ford. If Raisa can pass as a regular student, Wein House will offer both sanctuary and the education Raisa needs to succeed as the next Gray Wolf queen. Everything changes when Han and Raisa's paths cross, in this epic tale of uncertain friendships, cut-throat politics, and the irresistible power of attraction.

Review quote

Duty, love, expedience and revenge fuel the labyrinthine intrigues of this second entry in an epic fantasy series. Han Alister, quondam gangleader and reluctant wizard-come-lately, has escaped pursuit and heads out for magical training as a covert agent of the clans. Meanwhile, Raisa-more of a runaway princess than an exiled queen-has fled a forced marriage and seeks to learn the warcraft necessary to claim her royal heritage. The two eventually cross paths in the neutral university town of Oden's Ford, but not before each is embroiled in shifting alliances and courted by shadowy figures with enigmatic agendas. While the overarching plot advances very little, readers will revel in the alternating viewpoints of the dense narrative, rich in character development and packed with worldbuilding. Established players reveal unexpected layers, and the tangled political situation becomes ever more hopeless. No matter that this title ends with the heroes once again in desperate straits, separated by their enemies and their own deceptions; Seven Realms fans will pore over every detail and beg impatiently for the sequel.
