Roanoke Academy for the Sorcerous Arts—a school of magic like no other!
Who knew so much could go awry in one week?
Rachel Griffin is a thirteen-year-old girl with one small goal. She wants to know everything! To this end, she has come to Roanoke Academy—located in New York State’s Hudson Highlands—a year younger than her peers. Her perfect memory, which helps her excel at scholastic pursuits, had an unexpected side effect. With it, she can see through the enchantments sorcerers use to hide their secrets.
When someone tries to kill a fellow student, Rachel begins paying attention. She soon discovers that, in the same way her World of the Wise hides from mundane folk, there is another more secret world that hides from the Wise. Rushing forward where others fear to tread, Rachel finds herself beset by wraiths, embarrassing magical pranks, a Raven that brings the doom of worlds, and at least one fire-breathing teacher.
This does not stop her learning magic, making friends and, most importantly, finding romance!
Curiosity can kill a cat, but nothing stops Rachel Griffin!
