Publisher's Summary

The arrival of the mysterious Magi, along with their near invincible guardians, signals a change. For Jakob, apprentice historian, and son of a priest longing for adventure, it begins an opportunity. When his home is attacked, Jakob starts a journey that will take him far from home and everything he has ever known. Studying with a new swordmaster, he gains surprising skill, but also strange new abilities that make him fear the madness which has claimed so many has come to him. He must withstand it long enough to finish the dangerous task given to him, one that with his new abilities he may be the only person able to complete. With a strange darkness rising in the north, and attackers moving in from the south, powers long thought lost begin to return. Some begin to suspect the key to survival is the answer to a lost prophecy, yet only a few remain with the ability to find it.

The idea of the book is great, but...

I like the idea and thoughts behind this book, but the execution is lacking. I do not like how the main character is being roles and the constant talk of going mad and the madness. This takes away from the book. Also I am not overly impressed with the narrator. His pace interferes and highlights issue I have with the main character.
