Death lurks in every shadow of the Untamed, yet it is the only escape for mages from the bondage they are born into. For those mages unable to flee the nobles that enslave them, their only hope lies with a class of slave that is now all but extinct; the Arbiters.
When Drystan woke to find he had blood on his hands, he knew he had gone too far. The crime he committed normally punished by death, Drystan’s only hope is pleading his case to an Arbiter, mages bred to judge their peers through powers they alone can tap. Cold and emotionless, Prue must determine Drystan’s fate, but not before they find themselves entangled in a mage uprising the likes of which has never been seen before.
