Wizards don’t have friends. Beneban believed this, when he escaped the clutches of Ztavin, the evil sorcerer with whom he’d apprenticed. But as he strives to stay free by fulfilling his end of a bad bargain, he discovers many wonders in the Kingdom of Larlion. He is befriended by strange and magical creatures on his quest: tiny Worfs, a giant horned feline, the mysterious and powerful Forest Lady, and a three-handed, fur-covered soldier in the Grand Lar’s army.
Danger, treachery, romance, assassins, battles and even ice dragons are on the horizon. Will Beneban’s growing powers and skill with his sword be enough to win his freedom without betraying his new friends?
