Life at the Heralds? Collegium in Haven had definitely improved for
Mags. He?d even become something of a hero since risking his own
life to rescue Amily ? daughter of Nikolas, the King's Own Herald ?
from Karsite kidnappers. Things had improved for Mags? small group
of close friends, too. Mags? friend Bear had become a bit of a hero
himself; though still a Trainee, he had performed a difficult and
complicated medical procedure on Amily and restored the use of her
legs. Now Bear was accepted as a peer by the Healers, and Amily was
slowly gaining strength, walking on her own for the first time in
her life. Lena, the Bard Trainee, was relieved to be free of the
crushing disapproval of her now infamous, exiled father. Bear and
Lena were in love, and so were Mags and Amily. Mags had his
Companion Dallen, classes, his friends, Amily, and kirball. He was
no longer the ?foreigner? so many students distrusted. Life was
good. But Mags still didn't know who his parents had been, and
Bear, who had his own demons, was not one to let him forget: ?You
gotta deal with your past, Mags, you have to. If you don?t, it?ll
just keep coming back to haunt you, and one day it?ll do something
to you that you can't get out of.? Mags began his special training
as Nikolas? undercover partner and future spy for the crown.
Disguised, they worked at night in one of the seedier parts of
Haven, where Nikolas had set up a false identity as a pawnbroker
and fence. Mags posed as his deaf-mute nephew, covertly watching
and listening from behind the desk. He was especially good at the
trait that had kept him alive in the gem mine ? ferreting out
hidden motives. Fading into the shadows, as he had done as a child
laborer, his extensive knowledge of gems was a multifaceted
benefit, for he could identify specific stolen treasures and also
separate the real from the fake. And Nikolas could trust him to
chase down leads. Mags had grown extremely strong, agile, and
remarkably adept at running across rooftops, slipping down drain
pipes, and sneaking unseen along dark alleyways. He knew there were
still skilled, determined assassins hunting for him, hired by
Karse, Valdemar's long-standing enemy. It was necessary for Mags to
be always on his guard. Now Mags has graduated to a new role:
Nikolas? partner and information broker. Mags channels his old
cunning self from the mines and discovers that he's quite good at
his new job. So good, in fact, that Nikolas decides to let him open
the shop alone one hot summer night. Mags has barely unlocked the
shop when everything goes black in a blinding flash of pain. He
wakes with an agonizing headache, bound, blindfolded, in a
conveyance of some kind. But worst of all, he's head-blind. No
Mindspeech ? he can't even sense Dallen. And if he can't sense or
hear Dallen, then no one can sense him. And if no one can sense
him, no one can come to his rescue.
