(From the publisher):
Adiel de Cimmerian Canticle has always known he was different. He can move things with his mind. Hear birds singing on the other side of the castle. Force people to do his will with nothing more than a wave of his hand. He's inherited his father's dark hair… and his magic, too.
Adiel is the son of Mason de Cimmerian, once the world's most powerful magicreator. Mason gave up the high magic to live a normal life with Adiel's mother Perion. Now that Adiel has reached adulthood, and the full strength of his magic, Mason decides to teach his son and risk the chance of giving himself entirely to the magic's siren song again.
Unwilling to forfeit both her husband and son, Perion sends Adiel in search of a different teacher. He travels far but finds the home of the Witch Solveig and her servant Tovah, where Adiel believes he has found the woman who will teach him both how to harness the thrall and to become a man. Only when he learns the truth of where and how Solveig is getting her magic does Adiel learn there are some things more powerful than magic.
There is the power of love…
