Golden boy Graysen Galder has it all figured out. He’s captain of the Boston School of Magic’s crew team and soon-to-be valedictorian of the first graduating class of Magics and Naturals. No one would ever guess that, beneath the friendly, brilliant veneer of the BSM’s top Natural student, there are secrets. Like a debilitating disease…and execution-worthy crimes.
But all those crimes are in the past where they belong. That is, until a brutal murder puts a spotlight on Graysen. With his future in shambles and the past nipping at his heels, Graysen has no choice but to go on the run. And the only one willing to help him is a ghost from his past…a powerful Illusionist and the woman he loved…up until she destroyed his family.
Murders are stacking up in a city praised for peace between Naturals and Magics. Everyone’s got their own agenda, and the only one who seems to care about locking up the right person is Graysen. Of course, being the city’s public enemy Number 1 doesn’t make investigating any easier.
As Graysen and his ex-love’s band of rogue Magics dig deeper into the murders, they reveal corruption in the city’s highest authority. Forced to accept that his idols might be the ones destroying his city, Graysen faces a disconcerting choice. He must either turn his back on his dreams for the future or allow a murderer to walk free.
