This is an absolutely captivating debut fantasy adventure. Full of magic and trickery, this is the story of a wizard and his new apprentice trying to discover why the magic in their city is fading and how they must stop it from disappearing completely. It’s a richly imagined story and the first in a trilogy. You’ll be enchanted and excited and for sure you won’t be able to put it down.
