Sponsored by a rich patron, Jez attends the Carceri Academy, where many of the country's elite go to study. Though his patron forbids him to study it, Jez finds he has an aptitude for battle magic. When a sleeping sickness sweeps the land, Jez begins experiencing strange visions of the creation of the world. He investigates them and discovers a trail of dark magic that indicates his patron may not be as benevolent as he originally believed, and Jez himself may be much older than anyone suspects.

I was sucked in from the first chapter. Jez's world evoked wonder and made me want to discover my own hidden abilities. Shadowguard is a tale of growing and discovery, as well as trials and adventure. I can't wait to see what happens next.
