Veranix Calbert leads a double life. By day, he's a struggling magic student at the University of Maradaine. At night, he spoils the drug trade of Willem Fenmere, crime boss of Dentonhill and murderer of Veranix's father. He's determined to shut Fenmere down. With that goal in mind, Veranix disrupts the delivery of two magical artifacts meant for Fenmere's clients, the mages of the Blue Hand Circle. Using these power-filled objects in his fight, he quickly becomes a real thorn in Fenmere's side. So much so that soon not only Fenmere, but powerful mages, assassins, and street gangs all want a piece of "The Thorn." And with professors and prefects on the verge of discovering his secrets, Veranix's double life might just fall apart. Unless, of course, Fenmere puts an end to it first.

Imagine Nightwing with magic. That's basically the main character of this, only he doesn't have a Batman guiding him. But everything you love about Nightwing and other hero comics, you'll love about this book. It's a fun, fast paced story you'll never want to put down.

The adventure is fast, the characters believable, and the story complex. It reads almost like a superhero comic. Think a magical Spider-Man (wisecracks included) with his own female Alfred and brainy Jimmy Olsen as he takes on Kingpen. Great start to a new series!
