by Jolayne L Call
The night after the Dark Mage's attack, Malin is awakened by Karis, who insists they go North to rescue the royal family, being held captive by enemies. Karis has learned of their plight through a psychic connection with his twin, and maintains they have no time to gather help or supplies. In truth, if they are successful, matters will only get worse, as they return with enemies hot in pursuit.
