After surviving the last attack on Conlin, I now serve as the city’s protector while studying with Nik as he teaches me the magic he learned from the Druist Mage. It’s knowledge I’ll need if I’m ever going to be able to kill him — and prevent his marriage to Devan.
The power I’ve demonstrated has drawn the attention of something else, a power unlike anything I’ve ever faced, and one that intends to test me. If I fail, not much will happen — only that the balance of magic is disrupted and the barrier between our world and that on the other side of the Threshold will fall.
I’ve got three days to prepare, and I know that won’t be enough to get ready, but what choice do I have?
