Just before his seventeenth birthday, Ebon joins the Academy for wizards, where he has wished to study all his life. Now at last he can use the magic he has so desperately yearned to control—yet the learning comes hard, for he has wasted more than half his life squandering his gift.
To make matters worse, the darkness of his family name plagues him. The other students are terrified. Teachers regard him with suspicion. And before long, his family begins to draw him into their schemes that span all the nine kingdoms of Underrealm.
A dark plot is brewing upon the High King’s Seat, and slowly Ebon finds himself at its center. If he is to learn to become an alchemist—indeed, if he is to survive at all—he must cast off his family’s black legacy, and become the wizard he was always meant to be.
