Gavain Gomoresson, the baker's boy, spends his days helping his father and dreaming of being something more. When a boy from Special Forces arrives to investigate the potential hiding place of a rogue mage, Gavain surprises himself - and his father. Eager to try out to join the regular army, Gavain joins for Intake Sennight and meets with resistance; not only from the other recruits, but within himself and his father. Can he decide what his heart wants, and seize it? This is a prequel novella to the eagerly anticipated 'The Tenets in the Tattoos,' part of 'The King's Swordsman' series.
