Vallance is also the only world that Norryn Ashener has ever known. As his father Alderich faithfully leads from their nation's great capital, Norryn is still too young to yet realize his own importance. But soon the child prodigy will be forced to face his destiny as the world he knows begins to shatter. And it all starts with a gift, the blessing and curse of an amulet known as Ashener's Calling.
