The story of this book is fairly average fantasy stuff, and the telling is "workman-like", not inspired, but the research done, and the systems of magic created are so well thought out that the book is very likeable.

Alodar was a mere apprentice thaumaturge, learning the least of the five arts of magic. As such, he had no right to aspire to the hand of the fair lady, Queen Vendora, not even when he saved her during the demon inspired siege of her frontier castle. But aspire he did.

His quest forced him from one exacting branch of magic to another, with the rewards he earned always going to others. Finally, only the branch of wizardy remained. The great almost lost art of controlling demons.

It was then he learned of the ancient plot behind his rise, and faced the greatest danger any man could dare.

One of my all-time favorite books, this is one of those I come back to every now and then. Wonderfully crafted, Hardy takes logic to fantasy and returns with an outstanding storyline.

I never new there were five types of magic till I read this book and follow the adventures of an apprentice in the least of these arts as fate causes him to become a master of five magics. Interesting and different if you like fantacy novels.
