A fresh take on wizarding school

A new take on the "wizarding school" trope, but trading out a messianic "chosen one" main character for a much more relatable down-on-his-luck protagonist, who grapples with real non-wizarding issues. All set against an extremely well realized magical world.

Amazing and Gripping Story

This is a wonderful story that is full of interesting characters and situations. Enough twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat but still easy to follow.
I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the episodes and have also purchased the book.
