Assassins in the court…
Before he was chosen to attend the prestigious heralds’ collegium, Magpie toiled as a slave in the gem mines of Valdemar. though worlds away from his former life, orphan Mags remains an outcast among his highborn peers. In search of clues about his past, Mags discovers his parents were foreigners, and possibly criminals. When a disturbing prophecy sweeps through the college, he finds himself the object of deepening mistrust and hostility: the Foreseers, troubled by visions of the King’s assassination by “one of foreign blood”, have seen Mags with blood on his hands. Now Mags must solve the riddle of his parentage—and prove his loyalty—before the King and court banish him as a traitor.
