A would-be mage with no magic of his own has to defeat powerful enemies with only cunning and deception in the first book of an exciting new adventure fantasy series from Sebastien de Castell.
Magic is a con game.
Kellen is moments away from facing his first mage’s duel and proving his worth as a spellcaster. There’s just one problem: his magic is fading.
Facing exile unless he can pass the mage trials, Kellen risks everything – even his own life – in search of a way to restore his magic. But when an enigmatic stranger arrives in town, she challenges Kellen to take a different path.
Ferius Parfax is one of the elusive Argosi – a traveller who lives by her wits and the cards she carries. She’s daring and unpredictable, but she may be Kellen’s only hope.
