A Young Man Without Magic

This volume begins the tale of Anrel Murau, a young man of good family in the Walasian Empire. Although he comes from a clan of sorcerers, Anrel failed the tests for magical ability, and is instead training as a scholar, hoping for a career as a clerk. He returns home from studying in Lume, the imperial capital, and finds his best friend, Lord Valin, has become caught up in politics, and has defied and angered the landgrave, or provincial governor, Lord Allutar. Anrel tries to talk sense to his friend, but matters quickly get out of hand...

The next volume is Above His Proper Station.
