The Dragon Hunter and the Mage
by V. R. Cardoso
Magic will make you invincible. If it doesn’t kill you first…
They call him the Half-Prince. And he has always heard their sneers behind his back. Being the Emperor’s stepson isn’t easy. Locked away in the servant’s wing, Aric is rarely allowed to see his mother, the Empress. And never, in any case, should he even look at his half-brother, the Prince. As the rest of the Imperial family feasts in the great halls of the palace, Aric watches from afar, dreaming of the life he should’ve had. If only he had the power to set himself free…
