Alodar was a mere journeyman, learning the least of the five arts of magic. He had no right to aspire to the hand of Vendora, Queen of all of Procolon. But aspired by the lure of romance, he did.
Fleeing a frontier castle as it falls, Alodar’s quest takes him from one magical art to another—each with its own distinct powers and constraints.
