Alloran is a wizard on the run. Because of his dark past, when murders start occurring around town, he's the first they blame. Too bad the killer is actually an old friend of Alloran's who has gotten corrupted by dark magic. When he runs into an old flame that is a sword sorceress, chaos and a little heat ensue.
I'm not usually much of an epic fantasy reader, but this one kept me gripped. While it is a short read, you will find yourself completely engrossed until you finish it. Team Alloran all the way!
