Prudence for Fools by Sean Michael
Seer Del of the Red has been banished from Cloud City by the child king for warning of a disaster that never materialized. Along with his husband, Brawn, and his apprentice, Wu, they leave the city and make the long, arduous journey to the Ugul, Brawn's people.
Though they are welcomed there and Brawn is most happy to be home again, Del cannot shake the feeling that his predictions for Cloud City will come true. When his visions sharpen and become specific, he knows he must make another attempt to warn the city and its ungrateful king, even if doing so will spell the end of his days.
