Milos has always been fascinated by magic, even though he has only ever read about it in his books. His father, Lord Andrik, banned the use of any magic in the city of Anadel. When Lady Keren from the distant city of Breen comes to visit the palace, Milos meets her son Caleb. A boy who is eager to show off and has a few tricks up his sleeve.
After Milos watches Caleb cast a magic spell, he wants to try performing magic himself. First, he will have to sneak out of the palace to find a mysterious ingredient to make the spell work. If he can manage to find it without getting caught, he can finally do the magic he's read about.
But not everything is as it seems. Trying to keep the magic a secret, Milos unwittingly puts the palace and perhaps the whole city in danger. Torn between his curiosity and his duty, Milos must decide what to do before it is too late.
