Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A lowly enchanter finds himself entangled in a plot to assassinate the king in a new historical fantasy series set in twelfth century England. It is 1184, a Saxon boy named Durwin is proficient enough that he is assigned to teach, but the other sages refuse to promote him and he is hassled by the Norman juniors for his disability. But those troubles turn out to be the least of his worries when he manages to corrects errors in an ancient corrupted spell, which promptly prophesies murder - including a plot to assassinate King Henry.
