Timothy now knows that possessing no magical powers makes him very powerful indeed. Having defeated Nicodemus, Timothy travels to a war-torn dimension to help the Wurm—fierce magicians and warriors descended from an ancient dragon race. There is an age-old feud between the Wurm and the Parliament of Mages, and as Timothy investigates, he uncovers a deadly conspiracy. Further complicating matters is a mysterious girl who challenges the leadership of the Order of Alhazred, and the disconcerting fact that not only do mages continue to disappear…but someone is targeting Timothy as the villain.
This second book in the Magic Zero quartet, originally known as the Outcast series, features a refreshed cover and an unforgettable adventure.
