Fourteen-year-old Cory Thompson is on his way to magic school with his father and sister. At his unbinding ceremony, the powers he receives make it apparent that he is the magical community’s new Titan. In an attempt to help Cory prepare for his future destiny, Professor Archer becomes his personal mentor.
Due to a series of unfortunate incidents—some caused naturally and some intentionally by the Ancient Order of the Crones—Cory’s sister, Ashley, makes the biggest mistake of her life. Cory is the only person capable of saving Ashley from becoming an evil Crone forever, even if he is totally unprepared to fight.
Armed with only three months of formal training and his pet bird, Indy, Cory attempts the impossible while surrounded by elves, witches, and warlocks. If he fails, the Crones will have gained far more than a new recruit. They will hold the key to both the magical community’s and humankind’s only hope for the future.
