Marcus and his twin sister, Ellie, live in the loft above their grandparents’ magic shop—the one all the rumors are about. He’s all too familiar with the hand buzzers, card tricks, and fake vomit kits. He thought he had seen it all until he stumbles upon his grandfather hiding something in a secret room behind the family tapestry.
Now Marcus and Ellie must unravel a dirty laundry list of family secrets, and are thrown into a sinister world that has been hidden from them their entire lives. Not only is the family business a front, but Marcus has to develop his powers before the Dun-Bahr find him and assimilate the magic he was born to protect.
How will Marcus evade his enemies, and save his family?
It all comes down to what’s hidden at the Magic Shop.
