|Plot Summary of Flight of the Nighthawks|
|"When Caleb returns, everything changes for Tad and Zane. The two boys had been left out on Choosing Day, and therefore have no apprenticeship. Caleb offers Tad and Zane's mother to find an apprenticeship for the boys, and before they know it, they're on a cart leaving Stardock Town. They are followed by some bandits and, on Caleb's orders, flee, leaving Caleb to fight the bandits alone. Two bandits follow and the boys dispatch them before returning to the cart and finding Caleb unconscious. They take the cart to the next town and all becomes apparent.
Caleb is the son of Pug, the founder of the academy of magicians on Stardock Island. Via magical means they are transported to Sorceror's Isle, where they are trained to work for Pug's mysterious Conclave of Shadows over many months before being sent to the city of Kesh, where they must find the dangerous Leso Varen.
It soon becomes obvious that the Nighthawks, a secret sect of assassins have risen again in Kesh, almost a century after they were ended in Krondor. Caleb and the boys find themselves facing two tasks: firstly to find and subdue Varen, and to uncover the headquarters of the Nighthawks."
Patrick Sykes, Resident Scholar
