Publisher's Summary

The new, highly anticipated Tortall Legend from Tamora Pierce, the number one New York Times best-selling author who is legend herself, is a must-listen for any fantasy lover!

Arram. Varice. Ozorne. In the first book in the Numair Chronicles, three student mages are bound by fate...fated for trouble....

Arram Draper is on the path to becoming one of the realm's most powerful mages. The youngest student in his class at the Imperial University of Carthak, he has a gift with unlimited potential for greatness - and for attracting danger. At his side are his two best friends: Varice, a clever girl with an often-overlooked talent, and Ozorne, the "leftover prince" with secret ambitions. Together, these three friends forge a bond that will one day shape kingdoms. And as Ozorne gets closer to the throne and Varice gets closer to Arram's heart, Arram realizes that one day - soon - he will have to decide where his loyalties truly lie.

In the Numair Chronicles, listeners will be rewarded with the never-before-told story of how Numair Salmalín came to Tortall. Newcomers will discover an unforgettable fantasy adventure where a kingdom's future rests on the shoulders of a talented young man with a knack for making vicious enemies.

Great prequel

If you’re looking for an entry to the Tortall universe, this would be a good book. Great as a stand alone and not overly foreshadowed by the sequels. Numair is an awesome character, if a bit OP. I love the romance, and am already itching for future books in this series, since the main plot is unresolved.

Waited Impatiently

I am not sure about the person who read the book. In a previous series where we first meet Numair (Arram) his master Lindhall Reed wasn't a too old of a man. here the reader makes him sound like one.

This book also made me feel sorry for Orzone. being a prince can't be easy but you see the darkness in him already as a child.

it's great to hear of Numair's past and can't wait for the rest of the series! when i heard it was coming out, I got so excited!!!!

She did it again!

Another AMAZING addition to the Tortall universe. Tammy has done it again. I wish I could read it again for the first time. Numair is a character I felt has deserved his own series for years and I'm so happy to finally be able to read his story!
