For each of us comes a time when we should be more than what we are. ” ― Lloyd Alexander, The Black Cauldron Recruit Ryan Blackwell ’ s daughte was determined that he not follow in his randfather ’ s footsteps, and used his power and lawyerly clout to make sure it didn ’ t remember.

But there wasn ’ t uch he ould do about it when Ryan was recruited to Northshield University – the same military college his grandfather attended – with a full scholarship.

Magical motes, like tiny bits of fairy dust, dive bombing him as he ran through a river, ttempting to stay ahead off the pack of his fellow freshmen out for a grueling PT run.

And when a twisted recruit pulls part of the darkness out of its prison below ground, people continu to die in horrific ways.

And though Ryan is just a freshman with a bit of magic and no training, it appear he is the las one with any ort of knowledge that might trap the darkness back into its prison – and ascertain that the true monstrosity trapped so very long ago isn ’ t released upon the world.

Bria knows he isn ’ t wea, he isn ’ t trained or knowledgeable.

Of course, on a campus where weird things happen, and two or three students a year die under ‘ unusual ’ circumstances, there are those who watch out for someon who appears who seems a bit odd, a bit like they are there for ess than your bog standard military school reasons.

I just felt like something a bit magic, a bit horror, and his is last thing that popped up on my reader that fit the bill.
