Mal is a feared and mistrusted blank; someone who cannot be affected by magic in a world where magic is king. When the girl he loves (the only person he trusts) betrays him, he must run, turning to petty crime for survival. But when an opportunity arises to take his revenge, he jumps at the chance, not knowing there are darker secrets than his at play. Atmospheric and twisting, a stellar historical fantasy.
