Avis Blackthorn is not an evil Wizard!
The Children, Teenage and Young Adult fantasy bestseller about a not very evil Wizard…
Avis Blackthorn’s family is the most evil family in all of the Seven Magical Kingdoms. The problem? Avis isn’t evil. Not one bit.
His magical wizarding family and his 6 siblings will do anything to make Avis’s life a misery. Even the horses that pull the carriages don’t like him.
But he has a way out at last… “Hailing Hall School for Wizards,” a sanctuary, a place where he can make some nice, normal friends, learn magic and live a normal life, finally escaping the notoriety of the Blackthorn name… or so he thinks.
That’s where the real adventure — humorous, haunting and mysterious — begins.
Come along with Avis as he tries desperately to prove he isn’t evil like his family. As he copes with the humiliation as his seventh year brother Ross reveals Avis’s most embarrassing moments in front of the whole school.
And join tall, thin, be-speckled Robin and accident prone Hunter, Avis’s friends from the Outside — the same world as yours in fact — as they discover Wizard’s Spider Soap, walking, talking tree’s and ghosts that do the laundry!
And will any of them understand the rules of the wizarding sport Riptide in time?
Of course, in a magic school full of teenage wizards there will always be drama. But stranger things are brewing and Avis finds himself at the centre of it. After spotting the ruthless Malakai — the most evil Sorcerer around and his parents employer — coming into the school in the dead of night. Avis wonders why? And why will no one believe him?
The mysterious, beautiful Tina might know why. When Avis and Robin spot her creeping round in the dead of night, she tells them about the quest and a thrilling mystery unfolds. Avis and Robin, with their curiosity caught in the adventurous quest, attempt to do some uncovering.
Yet, everything goes horribly wrong for Avis. After being accused of something terrible, he is ostracised from his friends and lives high up in the school in the clock tower unable to rejoin his classes or friends. Everybody, even Robin, thinks he’s evil, just like his family…
But, in these times of solitude he has plenty of thinking time — Tina and the quest, the charismatic young ghost Ernie and the ruthless Malakai… Avis is sure they all link together in a mysterious way.
When Tina is attacked by Malakai, Avis decides to act. Sneaking around the school in the dead of night, to late night Library visits, Avis uncovers the clues and forms a deadly plan, to save Tina and end Malakai… finally proving, that he is not an evil wizard…
Avis has to make a big choice to make — his friends, or his family, and the choice… might just kill him.
Will he get to the bottom of the quest and clear his name? As he comes face to face with darkest Sorcerer of all time, with a plan that could change history and decide the fate of the whole wizarding world…
