The second volume in the Magician Trilogy takes up the story two years after the Welsh boy, Gwyn, discovers his magical powers. The focus shifts to Nia, Gwyn’s former neighbor, who’s the middle in a pile of siblings and believes their chants: “Nia can’t do nothing.” She believes she has no talent or identity, and suffers from her recent uprooting from the country home she loved. When she sees the magic of Gwyn and reaches out to his cousin, Emlyn Llewelyn, she begins to discover her own power in both the magical realm and in her present reality. John Keating mimics tones of teasing just as well as he slides into Welsh phrases and overlays a mystical cast to his reading as Nia travels to other worlds.
