Comments & Further Information

First UK edition hardback with a single number 1 as the number sequence indicating a first printing of this edition.  Minor bump at head and tail of book spine and to all four corners (caused in transit).  The dust jacket is complete, still shows the price, but is showing signs of storage wear to the extremities.

Author’s debut novel.

And when two of the wizards closest to Nicodemus are found dead, it becomes clear that some of those factions will stop at nothing to find the apprentice and bend him to their will…”
