A young man on the run... a wizard without magic. Wounded, alone, and stripped of his power, Ashyn Rune enters the Shalis-Fey in the slim hope of finding the hidden Elven city of Feydras’Anula - the very seat of power to the unseen force that is arrayed against him. Now a Recreant, he has broken the sacred Wizard’s Covenant and is hunted by those he once called allies. He made his choice willingly, but his prospects for survival are tenous. Still he must try. He is the only hope his sister has... even if she doesn’t know it yet.
