Tybolt's a Deviant, a hated race immune to direct magic in a world where Wizards ensure survival. But when he loses his entire family to a spell-made storm, he joins an elite group of Wizard hunters, organized beneath the new, non-magic-wielding king. Now 18, he spends his days capturing Wizards. But the nights are his, reserved to feed the starving villagers of Eriroc under cover of dark. There's always more people in need than he can help, and one of these days he's going to hang for theft from the royal kitchens.
