Tollon is an apprentice working for Sarton, the Royal Magician. Court life is very complex, very political, and as it turns out, very amatory. Tollon has to navigate it all to keep himself in Sarton’s good graces while not running afoul of the numerous people who would like to see him hang, might soon want to see him hang, and in some cases even want to hang him themselves.
