Conan Renaud is a stablemaster and that’s all he ever wanted to be…Although he would also like to be rich and to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Lucie. When he’s kidnapped from his home and targeted by assassins, Conan unwillingly makes a deal with the vindictive Magician Din Duvent: the Magician’s protection and gold in exchange for help overthrowing a monarchy.
Set on a quest to depose a king, Conan finds an overly-amicable assassin, a scathing daemon, and his own past standing between him and his happy marriage. Worse yet, the Magician brings with him an ancient curse, the wind-driven magic known as the Obligation.
