From a New York Times–bestselling author, the tale of a mercenary who must master his newfound magic to battle a powerful evil.
After a lifetime of brutal war, which he survived only through strength and daring, the mercenary Sun Wolf was shocked to discover within himself an inclination toward magic. Accompanied by his lieutenant, Starhawk, he travels across the forbidding desert to the land of Wenshar, where witchcraft is said to flourish. There he seeks out a witch with powers far beyond her years, who is rumored to have mastered the ancient art of white magic. But when he and Starhawk finally reach her, there is evil in the air—an evil against which all their might is useless. Sun Wolf must learn to harness his newfound powers—or be taken by this sinister trap. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Barbara Hambly, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
