In this bright YA fantasy, Neo Cihi and Kevin R. Free bring life to burgeoning young love. When Edison "Rook" Rooker starts apprenticing with the ultrapowerful Antonia Hex, he becomes immersed in a magical world run by a corrupt governing entity known as the Consortium. He helps Antonia break curses during the day but spends his evenings building an illegal apparatus and hanging out with the grumpy apprentice of Antonia's rival, Fable Page. When Fable and Antonia go missing, Rook and the apprentice must find them--and bring down the Consortium. Free and Cihi's performances capture the young mages' nerves and joy as they fall in love for the first time, ultimately keeping the narrative light and energetic despite its dark themes.
