Dorana is a nation of magic and mages, a mystery to the people who live beyond its borders. Social elitist Morgan jealously protects the magical status quo ... until he falls in love with a political reformer, Barl, and follows her down the path of experimentation and rule-breaking.

    Comments about A Blight of Mages:

    Because you know the outcome of the story the last few chapters are a bit long but it must be very difficult to write "chapter one" after the whole story. Deffenetly worth reading
