The magic is gone…or is it?
Lucian is a jaded flirt and professional bard who knows all the old songs about sorcery. When he meets Corwin, a shy mage who can still use magic despite the Drought, Lucian finds his desire growing with each passing day—not just for answers, but for Corwin himself.
Sparks fly as they find themselves passionately entangled in adventure and each other. But learning the true origin of the Drought and the Key to ending it comes at a price that their bond may not survive…
If you enjoyed [N.K. Jemisin’s] The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, I recommend that you pick up The Eighth Key as well!

"...it has queer characters, characters of color, non-binary characters.... Weyr takes the Schitt’s Creek approach: what if we lived in a world where people can be who they are, unapologetically, without losing their place in the world and their families? It’s a beautiful thing to read... The book sets itself up nicely for a sequel. I will tune in for sure."
