The magical threat to Coronnan defeated, and the people of the kingdom working to rebuild their shattered realm, Lukan—son of the witchwoman Brevelan and Jaylor, the Chancellor of the University of Magicians—is determined to break free of his family’s shadow and find his own place in the world.
He has finally achieved journeyman magician status, but he needs a special goal, a quest to complete his training. Wanting the quest to take him far from home and family, Lukan focuses on finding and rescuing his long-lost mentor, Master Robb.
The search will send him overseas to Amazonia along with the bard Skeller, who had won Lukan’s sister Lily’s heart but had been forced to leave her in the aftermath of a deadly incident. Now Skeller is returning to his own kingdom to take up the responsibilities of the king’s son, a duty he never wanted to face.
But what awaits Lukan and Skeller in the land of Amazonia is a series of terrifying challenges—a mad king, a power-hungry witch, a people held captive by fear, and the very monsters that had nearly destroyed all of Coronnan!
Can a journeyman magician and an unwilling prince overcome the threats they must face to free a kingdom and rescue a master mage?
