SummaryAdd a Summary
In this book Call was always told to avoid magic and to fail the test when it was time to see if he could join the Magisterium. And when he tries to fail, he fails at failing.
He goes through many adventures at the Magesterium, and, according to him,makes the first friends in his life. In the ned there is a special twist. I recommend this to anyone and everyone.
