Kaine Academy is a lot of things—prestigious, expensive, well-situated in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains—but it’s definitely not normal.
When Zie Harris starts the year as a sophomore transfer—and the school’s only half-elf—she knows she’s in for adventure. She just assumed it would involve more ignoring shifter arm wrestling matches while trying to study for the AP European History exam, and less actual danger.
Autumn Munro and Hal Hayes, on the other hand, have been teaching at Kaine long enough to know it’s best not to assume anything at school. The hedgewitch and the wizard always have their hands full with cheeky students and cheekier coworkers, and this year is no different.
But when Zie finds evidence of dark magic in the forest, things get a lot more complicated. Soon, Zie, Autumn, and Hal find themselves banding together—along with an ornery chickadee, a loquacious squirrel, and trees of all shapes and sizes—to try to save themselves, the school, and possibly the world.
No pressure or anything.
