Your enemies will do anything to stop you. Your best friend might be dead. And your only hope is your father...a man you've never met-until now.

Who would you trust?

Would you even trust yourself?

Bran Hambric believes that the Farfield Curse is over with. But when he discovers a safe-deposit box in his dead mother's name-in the very bank vault where he was discovered as a boy-Bran's past comes rushing back. Now he's on a frightening path that puts everyone he cares about in danger.

When Bran's best friend, Astara, is kidnapped, Bran will do whatever it takes to save her and prevent the evil mage on his trail from claiming the power of the curse for herself. But will the magic destroy him the way it destroyed his mother?

Praise for Kaleb Nation:

"Kaleb Nation's wry sense of humor kept me smiling, even while the mystical sparks flew. Get ready for lots of surprises ..."

-D. J. MacHale, author of the Pendragon Series

"Whimsy, magic, and suspense collide in this breathtaking tale. The Farfield Curse is a story you'll want to pick up, but not put down!"

-Kaza Kingsley, author of the bestselling Erec Rex series
