It’s been six months since Forsythe Fitzgerald lost his father. He was taken by a giant, unearthly creature that attacked Washington, DC. Now, Fort is confronted by a man named Dr. Opps, who offers to enroll him in a school that teaches its students magic through two strange books, The Magic of Recuperation and The Magic of Destruction. The two books, along with several others, were unearthed thirteen years ago, and only people born after their discovery have the ability to read their pages.
