For the past six months, rookie world mage Randall Flood has been hunting down and capturing anything that stinks of magic and stashing it within the pages of a spellbook named Chuck. But is there more to his breakneck missions than meets the eye?
The talkative tome claims Randall's predecessor, Mitch, is to blame for magic's reappearance. The previous wizard had banished most anything magical and hoarded the remaining spells and mystic weapons for himself. Now, as magic resurfaces with greater frequency, Randall doubts the wisdom of capturing the arcane and socking it away in the spellbook.
An encounter with an attractive and crafty witch through an enchanted dating app upends his wizardly purpose and sets him on a path to halt a magical disaster.
Randall must decide whether to save the world using his tried-and-true spellbook or through another mystical avenue that is unusual and untested.
Brian Clopper lends his trademark wit and talent for concocting clever magical mash-ups to a new fantasy novel that explores the archetype of sorcerer as earthly protector in a dynamic new light.
