It was only supposed to be one little job โ€“ a simple curse-breaking for Mennik Thorn to pay back a favor to his oldest friend. But then it all blew up in his face. Now heโ€™s been framed for a murder he didnโ€™t commit.

So how is a second-rate mage, broke, traumatized, and with a habit of annoying the wrong people, supposed to prove his innocence when everyone believes heโ€™s guilty?

Mennik has no choice if he wants to get out of this: he is going to have to throw himself into the corrupt world of the cityโ€™s high mages, a world he fled years ago. Faced by supernatural beasts, the mage-killing Ash Guard, and a ruthless, unknown adversary, itโ€™s going to take every trick Mennik can summon just to keep him and his friend alive.

But a new, dark power is rising in Agatos, and all that stands in its way is one damaged mageโ€ฆ
