Jonathan Snowbright is a retired sorcerer. Once he was recognised to be a great sorcerer, but now he is a librarian at Cambridge University. But he doesn’t mind. To be honest, he just wants a quiet life.
But someone doesn’t want him to get that. Fleeing England, chased by the mysterious organisation known only as “The Hub”, Jonathan seeks help from his old friends on the Council of Sorcerers. But it seems that not even someone widely believed to be the greatest sorcerer of the time can stop the Hub and their evil master.
