    When you're a Jan'Tep initiate approaching your sixteenth birthday, you'd better be ready to prove your worth as a mage. Either that or have a miracle on the way. And Kellen isn't counting on either. He knows he'll need a few tricks up his sleeve to avoid disgracing his family and becoming a Sha'Tep servant. So when a sassy, straight-talking traveller arrives in town, Kellen is all ears. Ferius Parfax is jaded but worldly, an exile who lives by her wits and the three decks of cards she carries. She can't teach him to spark his bands and access the seven magics, but with the hand that Kellen's been dealt, he knows he needs all the help he can get... A rich, compelling and laugh-out-loud new series for all teen, YA, adult and fantasy readers. Perfect for fans of The Dark Tower, Firefly, Hunger Games and Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Gleebooks Review:
    A new YA fantasy series bursting with tricks, traps, magic and a talking squirrel cat! What more could a voracious reader want? Great narrative: yes. Intriguing characters: definitely. Unanticipated plot: yes! As I neared the end of this book I found myself slowing down, reading other books, all as a way of procrastinating because I didn’t want to finish without the next volume on hand. ‘What would you give up for magic?
    When you’re an elite initiate approaching your sixteenth birthday, you’d better be ready to prove your worth as a mage. Either that or work some kind of miracle. But Kellen isn’t counting on either.’ His younger sister has surpassed him already and he knows he needs some tricks to avoid total disgrace and life as a common servant. ‘He just has to find the right tricks. So when Ferius Parfax, a sassy, straight-talking wanderer arrives in town, Kellen is drawn to her strength and worldliness. She is an unpredictable exile who lives by her wits and the three decks of cards she carries’, not the magic that pervades Kellen’s life, yet the essential skills she shares with Kellen prove more valuable than magic when his family is betrayed and the kingdom threatened. Humorous, compelling fantasy with twists, action aplenty, and a witty presence that has me longing for the follow-up.
