“Your ancient enemy is basically just a really, really big squirrel”
MAGIC IS A CON GAME. Kellen is moments away from facing his first mage's duel and the start of four trials that will make him a spellcaster. There's just one problem: his magic is gone. As his sixteenth birthday approaches, Kellen falls back on his cunning in a bid to avoid total disgrace. But when a daring stranger arrives in town, she challenges Kellen to take a different path. Ferius Parfax is one of the mysterious Argosi - a traveller who lives by her wits and the three decks of cards she carries. She's difficult and unpredictable, but she may be Kellen's only hope...The first in a rich and compelling fantasy series bursting with tricks, traps and a devious talking squirrel cat.
"...Plenty of scuffles, magic duels, baddies, blended with the author's signature sense of fun and humour.
This book made me laugh, gasp in horror, and I probably even teared up a little. Most assuredly looking forward to the next installment" Haillee
