Summary of the Book:
Magic rolls through Orion Tamura’s history classroom like a tidal wave of golden light that only he can see. The spell is deadly, and Orion has no idea who cast it or what they want.
Answers are scarce—all of Port Monica’s sorcerers vanished fourteen years before, including Orion’s father. Armed with his limited knowledge of magic, Orion is the only one left in the city who is strong enough to investigate the origins of the spell.
But the city’s leaders will stop at nothing to censor and sabotage anyone who gets close to the truth. Invisible otherworlders watch every move Orion and his friends make, and a mysterious sorcerer who knows the answers haunts Orion’s dreams.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I love the magic system in this book for Orion case spells using everyday material and his limitations which something we don’t see a lot in fantasy or in urban fantasy in this case. Orion and his warrior best friend Max battle to save the the city since there are not a lot of sorcerers left after a situation that took place over a decade ago that also took Orion’s father. This is a would that will you in and you get to see all through Orion. He makes other friends along the way and the world building is wonderful. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
