In a future world of Forgettings, history is trapped in an eternal medieval age and sorcery is brain-powered neurojectics, the heritage of a distant technological past. But this power is strictly forbidden to Tobi’s people, the Fealty of the Companion, which makes it all the more disturbing when her own father is imprisoned for smuggling an object of power into the city of Ælefas. As Tobi and her brother struggle to free their father, they face ancient mysteries and unexpected attacks. By blade and by hopetrust they defend themselves, but the situation gets bleaker as the city comes under growing threat by an outlawed sorcerer and his army of skull-faced creants—and he has Tobi and her family firmly in his sights.
