Chanmyr Chronicles by TJ Muir

Orphan. Homeless. Half-breed. For fourteen years Jedda’s home has been in the shadows and alleys of Tatak Rhe- city of the wealthy, powerful, and corrupt. He scrounges for survival in dirty clothes that don’t keep him warm; and he relies in his nimble fingers to keep himself fed. But, buried in his blood lies the gift of magic: an invisible hand guiding his life.

Cold and hungry, Jedda gets caught with his hand on Karrahk's coin purse -one of the city’s powerful rulers. In that moment, Jedda knows a fear far greater than hunger. But the man sees Jedda's hidden heritage and makes a decision that will change a hungry boy’s life forever.

Secrets have power.

Karrahk makes use of Jedda's talent for sneaking around. Jedda works his way into the most powerful circles, making friends and gaining their trust to access their secrets. Then he begins to care about them, bringing guilt as his loyalties become conflicted. When his magic awakens Jedda sees the ruthless game Karrahk is playing: with power and lives. Has he been helping the wrong side? Is it too late for Jedda to protect his friends and stay alive?

Jedda served a prophecy-driven ruler, gathering information and betraying his friends for years. Forced into an impossible choice, he betrays his patron. In a panic, he turns to the two friends he trusts, Kirrin and Cham. Together they flee corrupt Tatak Rhe-- with assassins on their heels.

Once he gets used to the unnerving sounds of the owls and coyotes, he almost feels safe. His newly awakened magic becomes unstable and unpredictable, with giant fireballs exploding in the middle of the night- a bigger threat than those chasing them.

Cham guides them across the magical barrier into the Faenyr lands, where Jedda is welcomed, learns to ride a horse and even to dance. More importantly, he finds someone to help him control his magic. Jedda has the friends and home he dreamed of, until his past catches up with them.

Will his desperate attempt to keep everyone safe be their greatest threat?
