It's a generation after the Second Magewar, and again power struggles threaten the Mageworlds and the Republic alike. Now, on decadent Kheset, the crisis has broken, and all eyes are turned to Jens Metadi-Jessan D'Rosselin, scion of the Galaxy's most rambunctious family and unwilling heir to the throne of Khesat. But Jens is off on his own Grand Tour of the Galaxy, getting the adventure he's looking for – and more.
