This question already has an answer here:

I'm looking for a fantasy novel, pre-2000. It's young adult fantasy.

  • Magical abilities involved talents similar to psychic abilities.
  • One character could hide the group, preventing others from seeing them.
  • One character could start fires.
  • They were on some sort of quest and had to go into the enemy territory.

Argh! It's so frustrating. I can't remember much about the book, but would recognise it instantly.

It's not Xanth and not Julian May. It's sort of a Stephen King's Firestarter meets Andre Norton type novel.

  • In this story was the 'fire starter' character taking the other to a wizards college of sorts? And teach the other how to light a candle with his mind? – BadMike01 Aug 10 '13 at 22:34
  • Nope, it was not that one. No college, no candles. – user16582 Aug 11 '13 at 16:22

This sounds like something from Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar Universe, most likely the end of the Arrows trilogy. It could also be from the Mage Storms trilogy as well.

  • checked it out, nope not that either. – user16582 Aug 23 '13 at 20:50
