Summary

Nevis Conarkin, mage owner of a sorcerous theater, is being framed for murder when a dead body is found in the royal box. Unfortunately, Nevis has no alibi, but she does have a motive. Although Nevis suspects the true murderer, the evidence points to one of her actors. 
Meanwhile, Nevis is preparing her chaotic cast and crew for the opening night of a play she detests, but Devlin Graham, the monarch and Nevis' lover, insists on. The play commemorates the anniversary of her defeat of a renegade mage and his plot to allow an invasion by Cashogi foreigners. At the same time, the king is attempting to re-establish amicable relations with the visiting trade minister of Cashogi. 
Against a background of malicious acts targeted at Nevis, her friends, and the kingdom, Nevis struggles to uncover the murderer and traitor.

    "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.
