Book III in the Chronicles of the Deamon Knights.
Red Tuque Books
In a heinous act of betrayal, Shark-tooth, the mysterious Kelatch, has abducted Sir Rodney from his castle in Balor. The Sorceress Magdalen will stop at nothing to bring him back, and with the help of the knight’s closest friends she follows the trail beyond the South Curtain Wall and deep into the Kelatch wilds. What no one suspects, however, is the shocking identity of the person who is truly responsible for Rodney’s abduction.
Wizard Aldus and his new apprentice, Robin, have gone to Concurie in search of the third bloodstone amulet. Set upon by Icarian soldiers, they soon discover that Robin’s spell to transform Shaun back into human form has actually turned him into a shape-shifter. They are still trying to sort that out when Aldus and Shaun are snatched by a pair of FireDrakes under Emperor Gamel’s control. Robin and Gregory are left to figure out how they are going to get inside the King’s palace and search for an amulet that no one has seen in over a century.
