Book One in a new series by the author of Keys of Power in which the power of magic comes from sacrifice. The more precious the object given up, the more powerful the magic. But unlike the rest of his family, Third Prince Maddyn has never had the power, and when he earns the enimity of a powerful Duchess, he finds it the better part of valor to lead an expedition to colonize a new land far from the kingdom. Of course, no matter where you go, there you are.
