Publisher's Summary

Aranthur is a student. He showed a little magical talent, is studying at the local academy, and is nothing particularly special. Others are smarter. Others are more talented. Others are quicker to pick up techniques. But none of them are with him when he breaks his journey home for the holidays in an inn. None of them step in to help when a young woman is thrown off a passing stage coach into the deep snow at the side of the road. And none of them are drawn into a fight to protect her.

One of the others might have realised she was manipulating him all along....

A powerful story about beginnings, coming of age and the way choosing to take one step towards violence can lead to a slippery and dangerous slope, this is an accomplished fantasy series driven by strong characters and fast-paced action.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

The master has weaved another magical tale.

So this was my first Miles Cameron Audiobook and between him and the superb narration of Mark Meadows, this story sprang to live to the extent where it became real. If you are looking to ad magic to Cameron's tale (not that it needs any) this Audiobook will be worth your time. Thanks to both masters of their respective arts, I enjoyed every moment of this story and look forward to the next chapter.

Ice cold. Hard as Iron.

If I was asked to say what the best series I have ever read is I would almost certainly pick the Masters and Mages series. Considering the fact that I have read hundreds of fantasy books I can’t give it a higher compliment. I am hoping for more books set in this world.
