Synopses & Reviews
This book tries to tells the story of two children, one boy and one girl both around twelve years old. Thomas Albertson is magic born, slightly spoilt and a bit full of his own self-importance he is also rich and from an important family. He's smart fit and annoyingly good at most things but he is also unhappy and lonely. Andra Freetson is also magic born; she is a normal girl from a normal family. Not rich and not poor. She likes to wear jeans and tee-shirt when possible but will wear a dress if needed. She had one best friend not at the school with her and feels lonely most of the time. She is good academically but would never admit that to. The book starts off with the two entering their first year in a school that teaches magic and non-magic students alike. Before you start to think it NO, there is no waving of small pieces of wood or flying on broomsticks (broomsticks are made for sweeping after all). It's about their journey through school life and about friendship and enemies, joy and sadness, laughter and tears, life and death. It's about a dimensional evil so old that it cannot be measured in time. We are with them as they battle the evil forces that threaten to rip apart their planet and indeed the very fabric of their universe. Magic is a big part of the book but then again so is the lack of magic. Technology both new and ancient, as well as dragons and other creatures, play a part in the book also. There is quite a lot of violence (some graphical) in this book as well as sexual references (mostly conversational) so if you are easily offended then don't read it.
