It will feature Numair Salmalín prior to the events of The Immortals quartet while he is still friends with Ozorne Tasikhe in Carthak.

Quote from Tammy:

"At the moment GIFT is scheduled for spring 2017. That may change, since I've just gone from a duet to a trilogy, but it will still be 2017. I will be apologizing for this for a while, but Numair's younger life was so complicated!"[1]

Offical Summary

"In which we learn of Numair's last years at the university of Carthak, the beginning of his conflict with the newly-made Emperor Ozorne (Numair's best friend), his quick departure from Carthak, and how he survives afterward."

This book will begin with Numair's first years at the Carthaki University when he was still friends with Emperor Ozorne. At that time he was still known under his original name of Arram Draper.
