As his normal life in The Academy begins to take a turn, he discovers secrets that will disrupt the balance of all of the Summer Domain. Together with his fellow Academy mages, Elizabeth and Carson, they uncover the truth in a series of unexpected friendship, treachery, and hope that will change their lives, for better or for worse.
