Being a Protector isn't easy.
But Merrick has always loved a challenge.
Despite his love for his home in the mountainous North, he accepts a mission given to him by the Central Network Brotherhood.
This mission pushes him back into home territory, where things start to get a bit weird.
The witch he's assigned to spy on, the enigmatic, larger-than-life Jote, is just a bit . . . off. Jote's magic is strange, his motivations grandiose, and he speaks too much about allegiance and a new Network.
Jote's murderous plan forces Merrick into one of the greatest adventures of his life. Can he save the North? Or is he too late?
MERRICK is a must-read for fans of THE LOST MAGIC and THE PARTING—because the magic is epic and the places are wild.
