    Wren thought she was an orphan. After discovering that she might have family, she wants to spend her first vacation from Cantirmoor's Magic School in finding them. But her quest turns into a far more dangerous adventure than she ever imagined, what with robbers, guardsmen, and an angry sorcerer after her. And when her traveling companion, young prince Connor Shaltar, begins to meddle with magic as well - things get entirely out of hand - meanwhile, back in Cantirmoor, Wren's best friend, Princess Teressa, is trying to get accustomed to living in court. Not so easy after all those years in an orphanage.
