A Touch of Magic
What's a young mage to do in a land where magic is illegal, and the penalty is death?
At the age of fourteen, Randall Miller is surprised to learn that he has the talent--for magic! Tricked into apprenticeship by a powerful Mage, Randall is forced to leave everything he knows behind.
When his mentor is killed by Aiden, head of the secret police, he flees for his life, stumbling from one misadventure into another. Teaming up with a trio of greedy traders and a capricious imp along the way, Randall must learn to master his budding power, or die at the hands of the Rooks!
Stripped of magic and forced into exile by his friendship with one of the fae, Randall Miller sets out to make his fortune by trading with the elves and dwarves of Tallia. But the elves turn out to be more dangerous than he bargained for, seeking to rip open the veil between Tallia and Llandra and unleash swarming hordes of unspeakable horrors. Even worse, Berry seems to be on their side!
Determined to stop them, Randall races against time to find the one artifact that can save Tallia, or destroy it.
