If he succeeds at his plot, the very future of magic will be at risk Sensible sixteen-year-old Jennifer Strange, acting manager of Kazam Mystical Arts Management and itsunpredictable crew of sorcerers, has little chance against the king and his cronies but there's no way Kazam will let go of the noble powers of magic without a fight. A suspenseful, satirical story of Quarkbeasts, trolls, and wizidrical crackle
