In the beginning, prince-mages ruled the world. They used their power to their own advantage and greed became their master. Their power was stripped away because of their ugly souls. Now, Vinearts are able to cast spells but they cannot hold power.
Darkness is determined to take over. A young man who is unsure of his own past may hold the key to winning this war against evil.
This is a dark and dangerous book that keeps you on your toes. It's an awesome combination of magic and fantasy.
