THE ACADEMY JOURNALSA SCHOOL FOR YOUNG WIZARDS. A FAMILY NAME SHROUDED IN EVIL.
THE ACADEMY JOURNALS VOLUME ONE
THREE EPIC NOVELS. ONE NO-BRAINER OMNIBUS.
BETRAY YOUR FAMILY, OR BETRAY YOUR KING
Ebon has finally been allowed to attend the Academy for Wizards and master the powers of alchemy he has possessed since birth. After years of living under the thumb of his cruel father, he finally has a chance to make friends of his own, as well as experiencing all the mystery and wonder of the High King’s Seat, the greatest city in the history of the nine kingdoms.
But with his new freedoms come new troubles as well. Ebon has always been able to ignore his family’s evil reputation, but no longer. Now he finds himself being pulled into dark schemes he cannot understand, and everything seems to be building to a drastic confrontation that may shake the foundations of Underrealm.
As darkness gathers and more and more powerful players enter the game, Ebon faces an impossible choice: remain loyal to a family that has always seen him as a nuisance, or turn against them to preserve the law and order of his nation.
And the doom that weighs on his decision is greater than he can begin to understand.
THE ABOVE VOLUME CONTAINS:
THE ALCHEMIST’S TOUCH
Just before his seventeenth birthday, Ebon joins the Academy for wizards, where he has wished to study all his life. Now at last he can use the magic he has so desperately yearned to control—yet the learning comes hard, for he has wasted more than half his life squandering his gift.
To make matters worse, the darkness of his family name plagues him. The other students are terrified. Teachers regard him with suspicion. And before long, his family begins to draw him into their schemes that span all the nine kingdoms of Underrealm.
A dark plot is brewing upon the High King’s Seat, and slowly Ebon finds himself at its center. If he is to learn to become an alchemist—indeed, if he is to survive at all—he must cast off his family’s black legacy, and become the wizard he was always meant to be.
THE MINDMAGE’S WRATH
Ebon has survived the attack upon the High King’s Seat, and now the Academy struggles to piece itself together in the midst of civil war. Now a quiet urgency hangs over all the lessons taught within the citadel; every student knows the spells they learn now may one day save their lives from the enemies of the King.
Then an instructor is found dead in the Academy’s halls—their throat slit by an unknown assassin.
Panic creeps in, while Ebon and his friends hear of thefts from the Academy’s vaults. Artifacts of incredible power are disappearing one by one, and are clearly connected to the murder. Theren thinks she knows who the thief is, but cannot prove it. And so Ebon and his friends must reveal the identity of the murderer, before they strike again.
THE FIREMAGE’S VENGEANCE
The Academy is in mourning after students and instructors alike have been murdered in its halls, but the murderer is now far away across the nine kingdoms—or so they believe.
When Ebon learns of a new threat within the Academy, he and his friends must work quickly to stop it—for if anyone knows the terrible secret they conceal, they could be put to death.
As the Academy’s danger grows, and the new Dean grows increasingly suspicious of Ebon himself, he must infiltrate the family Yerrin and learn a dark truth if he hopes to remain alive.
