Dragon fire, dark magic, and the bonds of friendship clash in a thrilling finale to the middle-grade fantasy trilogy by best-selling author Michelle Knudsen.

Apprentice mage Calen shocked everyone when he disappeared--apparently willingly--with Krelig, the incredibly powerful and evil mage intent on destroying the Magistatum and forcing the world to submit to his rule. Krelig believes Calen's untapped magical power will be the key to his victory, and is training him to unlock his full potential. Calen is desperate to escape, but knows he must first learn as much as he can if there is to be any hope of defeating Krelig. Meanwhile, Trelian is at war, and Princess Meg has been training with her dragon to fight the enemy forces. She refuses to accept that her best friend, Calen, could really be a traitor, but she might be the only one. As the mages prepare for their own deadly battle, Calen must find a way to get back to Trelian to stop Krelig before it's too late--if those he left behind will forgive and trust him enough to let him come home at all.

At the end of the last book it seemed that our hero had turned to the dark side when he joined forces with Krelig, the evil mage. Instead, of course, Calen was threatened with the death of all those he loved if he didn't acquiesce. In this, the final book in a terrific series, Calen is learning a lot about his powers. Meg is training her dragon for war. And the final battle is looming. It's a great end to the series.

At last--the final book in the Trelian series! When we last left our hero, apprentice mage Calen, he had been blackmailed into joining the dark mage, Krelig, who plans on taking over the kingdom and, basically, the world. Krelig is a harsh master, but Calen discovers he has far more power than he had thought. In the meantime, Princess Meg is training her dragon for war. The final battle is coming and more than Trelian is at stake. This is a rip-roaring conclusion to the series, and worth the wait.
