In two weeks apprentice bard, Mordigan Bryre will come of age and receive his coveted Journeyman’s papers. He is gifted with an angel’s voice—and cursed with a liar’s tongue.
A mysterious witch makes him a bargain: If he seeks out the wizard Talthos, he will receive a magical lute that will make him a legend. The catch? If he lies along the way, he will risk losing his golden voice. Dismissed in disgrace from his Guild Hall, what does he have to lose?
But princess Allysian has been in love with Mordigan Bryre all her life. How can she let him set off alone? But how can she follow? True love will find a way, and some things are worth any sacrifice.
