A highly original and engaging debut set in a fantasy world where
language holds extraordinary power, perfect for fans of Robin Hobb
and Tad Williams. Nicodemus Weal is a cacographer, unable to
reproduce even simple magical texts without 'misspelling' -- a
mistake which can have deadly consequences. He was supposed to be
the Halcyon, a magic-user of unsurpassed power, destined to save
the world; instead he is restricted to menial tasks, and mocked for
his failure to live up to the prophecy. But not everyone interprets
prophecy in the same way. There are some factions who believe a
cacographer such as Nicodemus could hold great power -- power that
might be used as easily for evil as for good. And when two of the
wizards closest to Nicodemus are found dead, it becomes clear that
some of those factions will stop at nothing to find the apprentice
and bend him to their will!
