Sins of a Mage
Twelve year old Marii cares for the burns on her father, Bridge Guardian Mikolas, after they let a mage’s family escape to avoid execution. No one comes to relieve her hurt father and she can’t leave the bridge unprotected.
On Cyara, one of the islands in the Sorceress Islands group, mages are hated and executed. The bridge is the only way for a discovered mage to escape from the wrath of the Temple. By letting a friend cross, Marii and her father have exposed themselves and their whole family to the Temple’s wrath.
When the Temple finds out a mage escaped, someone will pay the price.
This is the third story in the Sorceress Islands series.
