The spell starts
when the young wizard Beneban plunges off a mountain
and into adventure.
Wizards don't have friends. Beneban believed this, when he escaped the clutches of Ztavin, the evil wizard with whom he'd apprenticed. But after freeing himself by making a bad bargain, he discovers many wonders in the Kingdom of Larlion. He is befriended by strange and magical creatures on his quest: tiny Worfs, a giant horned feline, the mysterious and powerful Forest Lady, and a three-handed, fur-covered soldier in the Grand Lar's army.
Danger, treachery, romance, assassins, battles and even ice dragons are on the horizon. Can Beneban’s great powers and enchanted sword help him win his freedom without betraying his new friends?
