Satisfyingly solid fantasy from the ever reliable Robin Hobb, one of the authors whose work forms the bedrock of contemporary fantasy. Renegade's Magic is the third and final title in Hobb's current series, The Soldier Son and is now released in mass market paperback, with an overhauled cover design that exteneds to the Voyager reissues of other titles in the Hobb backlist.
"Nevare Burvelle, the second son of a noble Gernian family, once looked forward to a promising future as a cadet soldier, and then an officer in the King's Cavalry.
But his entanglement with the magic of the Speck people has robbed him not only of his childhood dream, but also of any hope he might have clung to for any kind of life among his kind.
In Renegade's Magic, Nevare is forced to seek out his enemies; he must learn how to harness his manipulative magic, and then join them in their fights against his own people."
