Never admit to seeing ichur, the silvery residue of magic spells. Not if you want to stay under the radar of the Councillors of Convane.
Dallas Wood, his guard Misty Locke, and their tracker mares sail across the strait to Hinton Island on his first journeyman judge circuit. All he has to do is judge local crimes while looking for proof of a rumoured God of Orphans and missing children.
Dallas' dragon friend, Longflight, decides to visit Hinton Island with Dallas and Misty, even though Hinton Island does not like Convane mages or dragons.
Mage continues the adventure after Judge ended, including mages, dragons, tracker horses and magic spells.
