Without warning, he and Kinsey find themselves in an unfamiliar land, unable to speak the language and fighting for their lives. It is here that Alex discovers he has been dropped in the middle of an ancient struggle for power, in a land where magic replaces science.
If he can survive the near future, he has the potential to become a great wizard, feared by the very people he needs to protect.
