A competent, unexceptionable addition to teen fantasy shelves; the sort of thing you’ll like if you really like that sort of thing.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

Before he knew about the Roses, 16-year-old Jack lived an unremarkable life in the small Ohio town of Trinity. Only the medicine he has to take daily and the thick scar above his heart set him apart from the other high-schoolers. Then one day Jack skips his medicine. Suddenly, he is stronger, fiercer, and more confident than ever before.

The concept of a ""wizard war"" may be well worn, and character names such as Nicodemus Snowbeard could likely produce a giggle with long-time fantasy readers, but Potter fans looking for a new fantasy/mystery fix may well relish this tale.

The pace and tightly plotted twists and turns kept me gripped throughout, and though the ending may be a little predictable, it didn’t diminish my enjoyment at all. Thoroughly enjoyable...
