Their hero is a fraud and only he knows it. When the truth comes knocking, can one boy conjure a way to save the day?
Young Samual longs to perform magic of his own. What’s worse, he can’t seem to convince anyone that their beloved Town Magician is a trickster without an enchanted bone in his body. When a wicked wizard challenges the pretender to a duel, Samual vows to keep his village safe by forcing the fraudster to rise to the challenge.
Determined to prevent disaster, he secretly shadows the phony protector during his training with the Grand Wizard. And when they barely escape an vicious attack, Samual realizes he must partner with his bitter rival. But keeping the truth hidden any longer may not help them outwit a powerful sorcerer.
With his town in grave danger, can Samual protect the ones he loves from the forces of evil?
