Taryn, Prince of the Grove, has failed two trials to find his place among his clan. So, unless he wants to do menial jobs the rest of his life he must pass the third to become the first ever male Rune Mage. During the Rune Mage trial a dragon eats the Queen and takes Taryn's sister. He sets out on a quest of revenge, befriends a group of misfits, becomes a fugitive, and learns a well kept secret.
