It wasn’t enough that Aes’s evil sorcerer of a brother imprisoned him in Nebraska for the last hundred years. No. He had to curse Aes too, magically binding him to a girl who wants to kill him.
Now all Aes wants is to get away from magic for good.
First though, he has to break the curse. That’s the only reason he’s traveling to Horizon Island, Maine. Not to close the breach between worlds. Not to save the mages there who are slowly dying from magical poison. Not to battle shape-shifting monsters. And definitely not to be a hero.
But when magic threatens to overtake the mortal world, will Aes join the fight, even if it means giving up his dreams of freeing himself from magic for good?
