Techno-Magic evolves from spells and hashtags.
Colby regains a magical gift he never knew he lost in the first place. His reawakened power draws more enemies than the bullies he faces daily in school. There's no time to learn the complicated rules of his magic. Colby creates a technological solution that merges magic with his mobile devices.
With the help of his quirky family and friends, Colby faces down new challenges. The magical world collides with modern times and technology. Ancient creatures are drawn to the boy with a new magic. A boy who has to learn to accept himself if he hopes to control the forces battling within and without.
Caught in the middle of a war that began at the beginning of time, Colby and his friends must learn to fight back, and learn fast. Not everything is how it appears and the battle to survive won't be an easy one, but Colby has no choice if he wants to withstand what's coming. His muse, an odd little blue man who turns into a cat, has followed Colby to keep him safe. This new generation needs a new way of being taught an ancient magic. This proves difficult when Colby's powers get the attention of the rest of the supernatural world. They have plans to take it all away, and will do anything to get it.
