THE ACADEMY OF BLACK MAGIC IS NOW OPEN!
72 children enroll, but only SEVEN will graduate alive…
A call has gone out that The Academy of Black Magic is about to reopen its doors for the first time in 200 years. The Headmaster, school staff, and denizens of the underground city of Scholomance are making their final preparations for the arrival of these outsider children.

Being kidnapped by a troll was not what Bean expected from a simple errand to collect mushrooms.
Now the young dishwasher is deep underground, in a forgotten and ruined city, to collect a legendary weapon for the troll – or be killed. But when the sword sings him a new fate, he learns that his future is far bigger than a small, forgotten inn.
