Only young criminals are allowed at the Underground Academy of Magic. 

When Tristan Fairholm is invited to study at the Underground Academy, he thinks he’s being transferred to a more secure juvenile detention center. 

He hadn’t meant to give his bully a concussion. He had never even fought back before. But this time, something strange happened—something he can’t explain. A strange power surged through him, and the next thing he knew, the kid was on the floor, bleeding from his nose. 

If he rejects the offer to study at the Underground Academy, Tristan will remain in Juvie. 

But something doesn’t seem quite right about this new academy. 

For one, it’s hidden away in the northern Rocky Mountains, where no one can find it. 

For another, there are no students except the fourteen recruited alongside Tristan. 

Oh—and they’re studying magic. 

* * *

As he learns to extract and shape raw magic, Tristan finds unexpected friendship in his fellow students, from lovable Rusty Lennox to mysterious, fey Amber Ashton.

But the more he learns, the more the mysteries pile up. 

Why are only criminals welcome at the Underground Academy? 

Why are the students harvesting mountains of raw magic, if they rarely get a chance to use it? 

And who is sabotaging their school? 

Dive into a world of magic and mystery—scroll up and buy The Natural Order today.
