FACING THE DARK TOWER
The long apprenticeship was over. Yan was certified in the light magics, and warned to avoid the dark. he had won the right to wear his claviarm, the amulet that was the tool, weapon, and sign of every mage.

And learn he did! About pirate-infested seas and mountain bandits; about imperial airmen (and women!) - and about a dark tower that stood beyond Time, guarding a power greater than Yan Tanafres had ever imagined-
