My name is Oliver Morris, and Im a painter mage.
I can use color and shapes and patterns and infuse them with power. I nearly sacrificed myself to the hunters, nightmare hell creatures that feed on magical ability, to save my best friend Devan. But to truly keep her safe, I have to convince Taylor to return to Arcanus before she releases anything else on the city.
Then Devan is abducted by a dangerous painter from the other side of the Threshold, one who might be deadlier than anyone Ive ever faced, and demands that I find a mysterious and powerfully magical item of my fathers. The only problem is I have no idea what he wants.
To save her, I have to master magic beyond my ability, but even that might not be enough. And if I fail, Devan will be forced back across the Threshold where a fate worse than death awaits.
