Review by Publisher Summary 1

When the Magicians' Guild unexpectedly discovers a young vagrant girl from the streets of Imardin who possesses a raw magical ability beyond their expectations, the members decide that this untrained mage must be found and trained before she destroys herself with a power that she does not understand nor can she control. Original.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

"We should expect this young woman to be more powerful than our average novice, possibly even more powerful than the average magician."This year, like every other, the magicians of Imardin gather to purge the city of undesirables. Cloaked in the protection of their sorcery, they move with no fear of the vagrants and miscreants who despise them and their work—until one enraged girl, barely more than a child, hurls a stone at the hated invaders . . . and effortlessly penetrates their magical shield.What the Magicians' Guild has long dreaded has finally come to pass. There is someone outside their ranks who possesses a raw power beyond imagining, an untrained mage who must be found and schooled before she destroys herself and her city with a force she cannot yet control.
