When Ezreth, an old world mage, awakens, he steals an ancient book and causes a magical event that strips the modern world of its normality, leaving the citizens of Kale to deal with the dangers of living in a world ripe with magic. After doing so, his magic interests a wealthy historian child named Ms. Vulpine, who seeks to discover why his abilities are similar to hers. Ms. Vulpine’s need to learn about Ezreth’s magical past puts her well-kept secrets at risk as she tries to find him before the government or anyone else does. Meanwhile, Chip, an indecisive loner in high school, receives the gift of magic and a new, dark, and treacherous pathway opens up for him. Tensions rise because of those using their newfound abilities for misdeeds as Chip learns about his magic and himself.
