The Gauntlet of Malice - Mages of Garillon book 2
The Gauntlet of Malice
Not only is Caradoc Penluathe a failed mage, now he is also a fugitive accused of murder. Delsidor Whitfauconer was fatally stabbed in Ambrothen Cathedral, and all signs point to Caradoc, and a malevolent misuse of magepower.
Evelake Whitfauconer, son and heir to the murdered man, is in Caradoc's care Eve-lake's mind has been removed and "re-placed" by Borthen Berigeld, in a first move to take control of Garillon.
Caradoc, hunted and bereft of the mage-stone which is the source of his power and healing, must travel paths imbued with malignant hostility. With only his native talent and courage to keep him alive, Caradoc must bring young Evelake to sanity and safety.
Only then can he tackle the infinitely worse confrontation with the feral evil of Borthen Berigeld!
