Magic: more contagious than the common cold... Kelley Strickland and her twin brother Jeroan accidentally step into an ancient battle between a power-hungry Sorcerer-who wants to rid the world of what he calls "renegade" magic-users-and a good Sorcerer who can barely remember his own name. Kelley soon learns that her new-found way of using magic just might save her adopted city, her brother, and her new, magically infected friends. Or it could doom them all. A fantasy novel for all ages about ancient power, growing up, and finding your place within those two very different realms. "Michael Jasper brings the common touch to the most uncommon situations. Welcome to his world." - Nebula-winning author John Kessel.
