The Broken Blade
by Carol Hightshoe
Delavan is a young man who only wants a chance to join the town guard and defend his home against the evil elves who regularly attack it. For ten years he has tried to hide the fact he was born with mage powers, but an accident in the training arena results in his arcane powers killing a fellow recruit. His only hope is the Arms Master of the guard who stands by him and a broken blade.
