Summary

When a young man chooses a forbidden calling, he must prove his worth...or watch his kingdom fall.

Sixteen-year-old Augum Stone is a warlock prodigy suffocating under the weight of expectations. Students idolize him. Nobles plot to exploit him. Commoners think he's a miracle-maker. And with invasion looming, his already war-weakened kingdom expects him to be its champion. But Augum doesn't want to be a pawn in someone else's game. He'll forge his own path: that of the Arcaner - not a warlock or a knight, but a lethal combination of both.

Legend says Arcaners once had the power to summon dragons. If true, it could change everything. Resurrecting the Arcaner path comes with consequences, however. Scandal. Malice. Treachery. And a harrowing test of character. He must survive. He must prove he's worthy of an ancient path. And he must save the kingdom...before it's too late.

Too much of the story contradicts itself

The whole story is based on how The royalty felt spurned because he didn't support Them and needed his influence to gain power but on the other hand once they gained power supposedly he held no influence and they didn't need to fear him at all ridiculous self contradictory story

Terrible narrator

The book is pretty good for the most part, but I do not like Gary! Stefan Rudnicki was so good. He set the tone for the books and this falls short!!!!!

This book is not as good as the original series

There are lots of good stories but the main character acts like a spoiled kid ... causing the reader to lose heart in the story. Too bad the main character did not grow up mentally after going through so much in the original series. Too bad. I had to stop with this book - too bad...
