What a beautiful story! I loved the Magician and I wish there had been a novel entirely about him! I bet his backstory is quite amazing! Nonetheless I enjoyed every minute of his interactions with Jyn and the slow unravelling of the true nature of both their characters

Lavar Burton brings this tale of Jayn and Timmon to life!

The story takes place in a standard fantasy setting, but the motivations and characters stand out as unique and having some depth. I am reminded of Ladyhawke and Matthew Broderick's young character, though I may be getting Jayn's age wrong there. The twist at the end is overshadowed by the characters themselves, for me - and I believe this is because I like them.

At any rate, this is a fun and interesting tale made all the better by Lavar B

This story, although short, has everything a good fantasy needs: an unlikely alliance, a wizard, a rouge, a quest...
It is a character driven story with excellent ending and great moral.

I'm on my 3rd listen through of this story and it won't be my last. There's a lot of dialogue to digest which is why I wasn't sure I liked the story at first... But with each listen I began to understand the characters and their interactions better. It really is a good story and, of course, LeVar reads it wonderfully. I thought the author was really good at giving us just the right information to be able to imagine a whole other world in such a short story. Both characters were very clever but I ...more

This novella was initially collected in "Fantasy: The Best Of The Year (2005 edition)" and later released on the web in PDF format, and as an audiobook. It is the story of a very powerful mage with a very bad reputation, hiring a very adroit thief. The thief is very wary, he does not want to do anything with the mage. But the wizard managed to entice him leveraging on his desire for new challenges... and some threats. It will turn out that the motivations of both characters are not the ones we a ...more

This was a fun fantasy short story. The ending seemed a bit too convenient, but good story

I write mostly fantasy, both short stories and novels. My third short story collection, On the Banks of the River of Heaven was published in November, 2010. My second novella with PS Publishing, The Heavenly Fox, was released in early 2011. I've been a finalist for both the World Fantasy Award and the Mythopoeic Award for Adult Literature.
