I picked this up on the back of the dragonlance book by the same authors.

I wasn't sure what to expect and to be honest I was quite impressed. Dragonlance books are standard fantasy fare, nothing wrong with that but it is refreshing to read something different.
The setting is a society made up entirely of magic users, any born without the talent are killed at birth. The story follows one who was born without it to the royal family yet was spared the fate. Skip on to adult hood and he is trying to get by undiscovered in his society. soon he is discovered and he must flee beyond the realms of the world he knew.
