Young Lord Erek has a problem. It seems he is a budding Adept and his powers are growing--and no one in his noble family is happy about that.
Erek's new tutor, Magister Andru, has seen this situation before...and watched it end tragically for another of his students. Determined not to see it happen again, Andru endeavors to allow Erek's talents to develop properly under the guidance of Master Adepts at the Academy of Malmillard--but first they have to get there.
Can Erek and Andru survive the perils that surround them? Perhaps with the help of three incomparable companions, they just might arrive at their destination alive.
