But hes also tasked with a higher callingto maintain the Veils that protect mage-kind from the hazards of the wastes beyond. As a cadet in the Mage Kings army, Nik has finally found what he always wanteda purpose. But when confronted by one of his former instructors gone rogue, Nik tumbles into a dark secret.
