Felix is a 16 year old boy who enjoys chemistry, gardening, and hanging out behind the caretaker’s shed at lunch.
Oh yeah, and he’s also supposed to become the most powerful Witch of his generation in the space of two years. Not an easy feat for a boy who, thus far, hasn’t shown even an ounce of magical talent – especially not if his power-hungry sister Elspeth has anything to do with it.
With assassins, hellhounds, and a mysterious stranger on his heels, it’ll be a miracle if Felix even makes it to twenty, let alone to the high council. Can he uncover his magical talents in time?
