The Rite of Wands (The Rite of Wands #1)

One boy…one Rite… And a world of deadly secrets that could change the course of history—forever.


And so begins the tale of Mierta McKinnon. When a horrible fate reveals itself during his Rite of Wands ceremony, he must find a way to change not only his destiny but also the land of Iverna’s.


Forbidden from revealing the future he foresees to anyone, he is granted a wand and his magical powers, but still must master the realm of magic in order to save himself and those he loves.


But Mierta is not the only one with secrets…especially when it’s impossible to know who to trust..
