This series is a must for anyone who loves magic! Kote is an innkeeper, and at first sight he looks unassuming and just like the patrons he serves. But that is about as far from the truth as you can get.

This first book in the series is a story of how a little boy who would otherwise gone forgotten by history rose to live a thousand lives. He has travelled everywhere there is to travel, and became the most notorious magician of the land. Getting expelled, slaying dragons, and hunting down the myths and legends of his world are just the tip of the ice-burg for Kote.

The next book in the series is called The Wise Man’s Fear.
