Alex Verus has a magic shop in Camden, London, and an uncanny ability to see the future.
But suddenly everyone can see his future. Because the Mage´s Council of Great Britain has named him a traitor and ordered his death in seven days´ time, and there´s no way anyone can get out of that.
Alex´s friends - Luna and the other apprentices he´s taken in - are tainted by association. They´ll also be marked for death when the ruling comes into play, and very quickly Alex becomes locked in a race against time to save them.
Perhaps he might even remember to save himself.
