Kellen Tavadon, son of the Arch-Mage Lycaelon, thought he knew the
way the world worked. His father, leading the wise and benevolent
Council of Mages, protected and guided the citizens of the Golden
City of the Bells. Young Mages in training-all men, for women were
unfit to practice magic-memorized the intricate details of High
Magic and aspired to seats on the council.
Then he found the forbidden Books of Wild Magic-or did they find
him? The three slim volumes woke Kellen to the wide world outside
the City's isolating walls. Their Magic was not dead, strangled by
rules and regulations. It felt like a living thing, guided by the
hearts and minds of those who practiced it and benefited from it.
Questioning everything he has known, Kellen discovers too many of
the City's dark secrets. Banished, with the Outlaw Hunt on his
heels, Kellen invokes Wild Magic-and finds himself running for his
life with a unicorn at his side.
Kellen's life changes almost faster than he can understand or
accept. Rescued by a unicorn, healed by a female Wild Mage who
knows more about Kellen than anyone outside the City should,
meeting Elven royalty and Elven warriors, and plunged into a world
where the magical beings he has learned about as abstract concepts
are flesh and blood creatures-Kellen both revels in and fears his
Especially once he learns about Demons. He'd always thought they
were another abstract concept-a stand-in for ultimate evil. But if
centaurs and dryads are real, then Demons surely are as well. And
the one thing all the Mages of the City agreed on was that
practicing Wild Magic corrupted a Mage. Turned him into a Demon.
Would that be Kellen's fate?
Deep in Obsidian Mountain, the Demons are waiting. Since their
defeat in the last great War, they've been biding their time,
sowing the seeds of distrust and discontent between their human and
Elven enemies. Very soon now, when the Demons rise to make war,
there will be no alliance between High and Wild Magic to stand
against them. And all the world will belong to the Endarkened.
