Ghert’s imprisoned mother manages to send out a mind message warning him. 13 year old Ghert must escape from the harsh deprivation of his school of magic. His keepers intend to kill him, and they don’t anticipate any difficulties, since he has no “trace”, the telltale signal that someone has inherited magical abilities. They think him inexperienced, and harmless. They are in for a surprise.
