    Mordecai's growing power and success have made him a threat, not just to the gods and their minions, but also to the king of Lothion.

Wizard, lord, husband, father, and now archmage...no man can balance so many roles without sacrificing something. Will the world be worth saving if it costs him the very reasons he has for living in it?
