Nightchild - James Barclay

Magic users should consider adoption.

The two members of the current Raven that can do the spellcasting thing have had a kid.

So, a lot more about the various magic organisations in this book, and the dilemma at the heart of it is, to save everyone, do you slaughter your own kid, or a friend's kid, if it cimes to that?
