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.

"Great Book, Great Narration!"
Great book! Great back story and an interesting new world to explore. The book is kind of part Harry Potter and part Percy Jackson. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer, especially in the middle section about the Academy. Can't wait for the second one!
Loved it. if you like Harry Potter, Fablehaven, Lord of the Rings this is a cross between everything is a great fantasy story with angels and demons in it instead of elves and Dragons.
"The book was very childish and straightforward"
The story seems rushed. The author just kinda does a fly by of events in the story that could have been delved into. I do like the background put into story though, the author spent time to develop a rich history/mythology, unfortunately that's all he spent time on the rest he seems to forget. So while the story lacked in many areas it wasn't unreadable.
