Hundreds of years before the great Mage War, a land lies, unknowing, on the edge of catastrophe ...Barl is young, impulsive and wants to explore her raw magical potential. But Dorana's rigid class system means that only those with the right pedigree are trained. Desperate to learn, Barl lets her eagerness lead her to rebellion and disgrace. She faces the possibility of never using her powers again - until she meets Morgan Danfey, who sits on the Mage Council itself. Together, they realise they can create an extraordinary new magic. But the lure of this great power reveals a darkness in Morgan which will bring their land to its knees. A Blight of Mages is set in the world of Karen Miller's Bestselling debut The Innocent Mage.
