For as long as Enrandl can remember, everything he desired has come effortlessly to him. In his studies of the magical arts, he has always had a natural ability to channel magical energy. And when his mentor tries to change Enrandl’s views instead of teaching him more magics of the realms, killing him is easy too. But when he discovers an obscure notation in his former master’s library, he encounters trouble and complication for the first time. The mysterious book, which could make him invincible, soon becomes an obsession; he will do anything to possess it, but it always seems to elude his grasp. Enrandl’s determination meets opposition at every juncture from those who strive to keep the power of the treatise away from him. But they cannot keep it from him indefinitely, and once he has the book’s power, the destruction he can inflict will be limited only by his imagination. In this fantasy novel, a powerful, evil mage searches for a tome that will grant him vast power and make him invincible—while others seek to thwart him and keep the world safe.
