“A generation ago, Constantine Madden came close to achieving what no magician had ever achieved: the ability to bring back the dead. He didn’t succeed . . . but he did find a way to keep himself alive, inside a young child named Callum Hunt.
Now Call is one of the most feared and reviled students in the history of the Magisterium, thought to be responsible for a devastating death and an ever-present threat of war. As a result, Call has been imprisoned and interrogated. Everyone wants to know what Constantine was up to-and how he lives on.
But Call has no idea.”
This is the fourth book in the Magisterium series; five books are planned for this series. This was a short but good continuation of the Magisterium series. I felt like this was more of a novella than a full length novel. It’s just over 200 pages and I read it in one 2hr sitting.
Call has been imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. His friends come to his rescue but when another Chaos mage gets involved Call ends up in even more trouble than he started in.
Fans of the series should be pleased. The ending was the best part; something huge happens and sets things up nicely for the final book in the series.
Overall this was a good, but not great, addition to the Magisterium series.
