Child of the Sword
by J. L. Doty
Prisoner of a clan of witches, a young boy clashes with the evil old matriarch. Can he master her magic and survive?
Rat is no ordinary thief
A small feral child, he steals what he can to feed the gnawing hunger in his gut, though nothing can satisfy the hunger in his soul.
But he has a special talent that the wizards and witches of the clans covet, so Clan Elhiyne abducts him and gives him the name Morgin.
Can he escape the scheming of the clan’s calculating and manipulative leader, the matriarchal old witch Olivia?
And as he grows into manhood, can he survive the inter-clan rivalries, and the hatred that smolders between Olivia and her arch-enemy Valso, leader of Clan Decouix?
