About the Book:
Veranix Calbert leads a double life. By day he’s a struggling magic student at the University of Maradaine. At night, he spoils the drug trade of Willem Fenmere, crime boss and murderer of Veranix’s father. He’s determined to shut Fenmere down, no matter how many times he falls asleep in class.
When he disrupts a drug delivery, Veranix acquires two magical items that give him the edge he needs to become a real thorn in Fenmere’s side. His new powers and attitude draw the full attention of Fenmere, mystical circles and street gangs, and they all want a piece of “The Thorn.” With professors and prefects on the verge of discovering his secrets, Veranix’s double life might fall apart, and the assassins and mages after him could end it completely.
