A search for personal identity in a world that's afraid of the truth.
Nevosi has a mysterious growing power over water. Born in an ancient political family, the truth about who he is and where is power comes from is difficult to learn. Unwelcome in his own home, where his family is hiding scandalous magical secrets, Nevosi must brave a culture of stiff, prejudiced Pracks and risk his life to learn the truth about his magical identity.
Lord Jorry appears to be self-assured, crafty, and powerful. But beneath his confident facade lurks an inner doubt about his purpose in the world, and his current magical mission. When Jorry's life is threatened and his orders seem to have been misguided, fear threatens his identity and his mission. In order to become who he's been prophesied to be, Jorry must throw in his lot with Nevosi and face his inner demons in order to find strength.
