The Wizard Heir
Sixteen year old wizard Seph McCauley has spent the
past 3 years bouncing from one exclusive private school to another.
Orphaned as a baby, Seph was raised by Genevieve LeClerc, the sorcerer
owner of a Toronto bed and breakfast. LeClerc tried to protect Seph
from the treacherous world of wizardry by keeping him away from
others of his kind.
But now LeClerc is dead, leaving Seph on his own and without the
training he needs to control his growing power. He prowls the illegal
clubs of Toronto’s warehouse district, plagued by magical
accidents that are increasing in frequency and severity. Worse,
he’s beginning to realize that the stories he’s been
told about his parents’ life and death are fabrications—that
the people he most trusted have been lying to him.
After causing a tragic fire at an after-hours party, Seph is sent
to the Havens, a secluded boys’ school on the coast of Maine.
At first, it seems like the answer to his prayers. Gregory Leicester,
the headmaster, promises to train Seph in magic and enroll him in
the mysterious order of wizards known as the Alumni. But the dream
quickly turns into a nightmare as Seph learns there is a price to
be paid for knowledge.
Everyone around him is keeping secrets: Jason Haley, a fellow student
who’s been told to stay away from Seph; the enchanter Linda
Downey, who knew his parents; the rogue wizard Leander Hastings,
and the warriors Jack Swift and Ellen Stephenson. Seph finds himself
at the center of a war that he may not survive.
