Cassel lives in a world where magic is possible, but illegal and not everyone is capable of doing it. He is the only member of his family who cannot perform some type of magic. He currently goes to a private boarding school to try and get away from his crazy family, but that is all jeopardized when he mysteriously sleepwalks onto the roof of the dorm and is mistakenly believed to be a suicide risk. Years prior to this incident Cassel believes he killed his best friend although the memory is a bit hazy. Now, he is having weird visions about a white cat and sleepwalking and he starts to wonder if his family is telling him the truth about what happened that fateful night years before. Would his family use their powers on him? Can he find out the truth before it is too late?
Fantasy lovers will enjoy this book partly because it is so unique. It is not the same book we’ve all read a thousand times, but instead brings a new and modern twist to the magic and fantasy genre. Cassel’s family all have real and understandable motivations, but that does not mean they all make the correct choices all the time. Cassel is faced with some hard truths as he learns the facts and must decide how he will proceed. The book is entertaining and engaging and will keep readers asking for more.
