Evren is satisfied with his life playing in a musical troupe. He sometimes wishes he had chosen to study magic, but he doesn’t think he could have gotten very far with it… until he suddenly finds that he is the royal heir to a magical amulet. Now, he must study under an acrimonious high priest, Lord Calius, to learn important magic rituals. In the palace where he comes to live, he meets the airy Prince Aurelio, who seems so empty and frivolous it’s no wonder he couldn’t use the amulet himself. Evren would rather have nothing to do with either of them, but he hasn’t much of a choice. But as he continues to learn magic, and to come to terms with how his life has changed, he finds that there might be more to both of them than meets the eye.
