The stunning conclusion to the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker series. Following the death of his family, Prince Gar is now King Gar, WeatherWorker of Lur, and his former assistant Asher has become the most powerful Olken in history, with the authority to sit in judgement at Justice Hall. But Gar's magic is unnatural, and his time as WeatherWorker is running out.
Time is also running out for the evil sorcerer mage Morg, trapped inside the shattered body of Lur's Master Magician, Durm. When Gar's magic fails at last, Asher unwittingly aids him - and so the Innocent Mage is revealed. Fearing civil war, Gar convinces his friend to risk his life by continuing his illegal magic working, promising to protect him should the truth be discovered. But some promises should never be asked for, or given.
When the dangerous deception is revealed, enemies on all sides close in for blood and Gar is forced to make a terrible decision, not realising he's playing right into Morg's hands. Asher looks doomed ...and it seems that not even Dathne, the love of his life, and her Circle of secret Olken magicians can save him, or the kingdom.
