Fourteen year old Krys Anderwood lives in a small village in Lanterra. His world changes when he loses his wizard apprenticeship and his home-both in the same day. A centuries-old prophecy and an ancient tome reveal the path placed before him. He must leave his village and find a wizard lost 200 years earlier. Cursed by a mighty sorcerer, the wizard has been held captive in a castle lost to time. Barely able to perform basic magic, Krys fears he will fail, allowing his beloved homeland to fall victim to evil magic.
