Shai discovers he is a pathfinder and is desperate to find a genetically suitable partner to prevent his extrasensory talents from running amok. Unfortunately those talents make him a target for the brutal crime lords and other violent denizens who inhabit the city of Nhil-Rhar. Shai needs to learn how to use his pathfinder senses-no matter how much they terrify him-before he's trapped in a partnership that will enslave him for the rest of his life.
Andrei and Jander return home with the grimmest of news and tell their king to do what he can to prepare his city for war. Kirin is heading toward the capital with a legion behind him, and he is determined to take revenge both on Andrei and on the apprentice he believes supplanted him in his former master's heart. With the might of an entire dragon army at his command, he very well might succeed.
It's a race against time as Andrei and Jander head deep into the volcanic warrens of the inner mountains to stop Kirin from completing the dark magic spell that will awaken the power of the dragons. Can Jander overcome his fear of the power he still does not entirely understand in order to save himself and the master he has grown to love?
Andrei decides to bring his apprentice to the far-off island of Sutan-lei, where the eminent mage-scholar Master Luth is rumored to abide.

He and Andrei set out on their first mission together as mage and apprentice to investigate a mysterious series of dragon attacks near a provincial city at the edge of the kingdom, but what they find there turns out to be far more devastating than a mere homicidal dragon.
Jander Teregnan has never wanted anything more than to become a mage. Of course every apprentice needs a master, which comes with its own set of challenges...especially when the master he's chosen for himself is none other than Andrei Teresh, personal advisor to the king and master mage of the city of Vallerin. Together, Andrei and Jander must find a way to save their kingdom from war and dragons.
