On an empty baseball diamond in a quiet Toronto suburb, a demon has been summoned.
Seventeen-year-old Alton is miles away, just wishing he had a tutor he didn’t outsmart or outmatch. His prayers are answered when Professor Victor Orvius makes an unexpected visit, offering to teach Alton magic without the restrictions. The only condition is that he follow Orvius’ rules and not ask too many questions.
Alton soon discovers he’s not Orvius’ only student. Reagan is a competitive young witch with a bad attitude and talent for sarcasm. Their personalities clash, causing trouble for both on more than one occasion, until they realize a greater threat than being one-upped.
The demon threatens not only their chances at passing their magic finals—it threatens their lives. If Alton and Reagan can’t learn to get along, they could be facing their deaths…or an eternity together, trapped in another realm.
I'm an author and book-lover living and writing in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I write fantasy and science fiction and aim to build worlds that push the imagination of readers. I was raised on Indiana Jones and Fairy Tales and strongly believe every story ought to be an adventure story. I like tragedy and happily-ever-after and I don't think the two are mutually exclusive.
