A beloved fantasy classic and the beginning of one of the most breathtaking adventure stories of all time



One man, Richard Cypher, holds the key to the fate of three nations and of humanity. But until he learns the Wizard’s First Rule his chances of succeeding in his task are slim. And his biggest problem is admitting that magic exists at all …

A novel of incomparable scope and brimming with atmospheric detail: in a world where heart hounds stalk the boundaries for unwary human prey, blood-sucking flies hunt on behalf of their underworld masters, and where artists can draw more than your likeness, there is no place to hide, nowhere safe.

Here magic makes love twice as sweet, betrayal and loss twice as bitter.
