PRACTITIONER OF THE ARTS
A Phosfire Journeys - Book 2
In this exciting sequel to Purveyors and Acquirers, if young apprentice Zeal has any hope of learning how to control his explosive Phosfire talent, he must travel to the city of Havensharth and face the difficult challenge of becoming a Practitioner of the Arts. As he leaves behind those he loves, including Iris, the Temple of the Ladies of Life, and the Trade, who have all sheltered and protected him since he was an infant, he is joined by his best friend, Tulip, who decides to accompany him and study the warrior’s arts, herself. Furthermore, Kit, the Shadow Cat, claims Zeal as her own and surprises him with her decision to travel along. Zeal soon learns the risks associated with his bond to this beloved, intelligent, yet fierce creature. Zeal and Tulip are taken into the care of strangers: Master Ice, Zeal’s Mentor as a Practitioner, and Lady Mirada, a retired mercenary. While the young apprentices expand their skills and make new friends, their newfound abilities may not be enough to enable them to survive the dangers that await them.
