How Many Roads
By T. Kingfisher
T. Kingfisher’s 2019 Minor Mage is a stand-alone fantasy.
A drought is destroying a small town and its farmland. Perhaps it could be ended if someone were to trek the distant Rainblade mountains, there to petition the Cloud Herders for respite. But who will undertake this dangerous quest? Oliver’s neighbors are sure that he is the best chance the town has. Oliver is the town’s only mage.
Oliver really really doesn’t want to go, but he is only twelve. Who cares what some kid thinks?
