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

Arram Draper is a boy 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 begins to realize that one day soon he will have to decide where his loyalties truly lie.

In the Numair Chronicles, readers 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.

Tamora Pierce, need I say more?

  1. I only discovered Tamora Pierce last year (I can’t believe I was missing out all these years!) and I can’t wait for this to be released 🙂

  2. You just reminded me that I need to read my audiobook of this! I haven’t read anything by Tamora Pierce in probably a decade!

  3. I’ve never read Tamora Pierce. Although some of the redoing of her covers has definitely intrigued me. Great pick, hope you get to read it soon.

  4. This book sounds great! I don’t think I’ve ever read anything by Pierce which surprises me because many friends have recommended her books to me, citing that they are my types of books. Maybe someday! I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a lovely week. =)
