Review by Gabe Adams.
This is a book full of twist and turns. A young boy is sent to a school to learn magic. He has to make new friends and has to overcome some tough events and tests. I really liked this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I think that whoever likes to read action and adventure will like this book.

Review by Jake Worthington.
This is a very good book and I highly recommend it. If you are one to like fantasy and magic books this is one for you. Callum is told by his dad that he should stay away from magic. Callum tries to fail, but he fails at failing. He is taken to the Magisterium to learn to control his magic. He and his friends, Tamara and Arron, are taught by Master Rufus. But something is hiding from them and they are trying to find out what it is. It's about Callum's history. Callum was warned by his father to stay away from magic, and he should have listened to him.
