Avoiding being noticed and steering clear of mages, Kellen and Reichis live day-to-day. Frustrating for fearless Reichis who refuses to live as a coward, Kellen must live like this to survive. The dark dreams have worsened, and the Shadowblack on his face has grown – only The Order of Black Binders can hold it back. Kellen fast becomes sucked into their way of life, training in rituals of self-privation. Rich yet humorous, this is a compelling series for fantasy readers.
