All eight novellas that comprise the Saga of the God-Touched Mage
together for the first time.A mage's apprentice...Unnatural magic of devastating power...A clash that will change the world.
Garrick enjoys the sheltered life of a mage’s apprentice until one night when he's given a terrifying new magic and discovers his superior has been assassinated. Against his will, he finds himself plunged into the depths of a magewar and embroiled in the sibling rivalries of god-like planewalkers.
His need to rid himself of this magic leads Garrick to befriend Darien, a young man with a hidden past, and Sunathri, the charismatic leader of a band of independent mages. Through tangles of political intrigue and treachery, their adventures take them to ancient underground cities, a legendary mountain peak, and across the vast planes of the Thousand Worlds.
With each new truth he uncovers, Garrick realizes that this new magic, and the forces behind it, will threaten the very nature of who he is.
