An enigmatic stranger with surreal, piercing blue eyes and his beautiful companion have taken shelter there, and Tannor cannot help but stare. His scholar’s curiosity and tenacious persistence will not allow him to walk away. Tannor’s life is about to change forever. He is about to embark on one final journey in his quest to discover genuine magic, and he may get more than he bargained for.
