The book is all about the struggles of Fenrey for finding his place in this world that is filled with magic as well as unforeseen results. Despite his happiness for rediscovering the magic he is overwhelmed by the attention and status of a celebrity that he got. On the other hand his close ones face different threats to their well-being forcing him to use new power against his enemy.
The story moves away from the familiar city of New York and into the vibrant world of Nova Celes, home to unique transportation systems and magical institutions.

The story combines action-packed sequences with touching moments of love and friendship, allowing readers to connect deeply with the characters. But the book ends on a shocking cliffhanger, leaving readers eagerly awaiting the next chapter to see the consequences of Penray’s critical decisions. In short, Magic Breaks, Magic Conquers, A.J.
