Son of a Witch

On Gaeleth -- a world where mages have been outlawed, and the penalty is death -- it is a grave insult to call someone a 'son of a witch' in the common traders' tongue.  Instead of being the son of a witch, Aegan is a mage whose power is so great that Prophecy has chosen him to be the salvation of a nation at war.  The fate of the world rests on a 'son of a witch' who was raised to hate what he is, and what he must become.
