After glimpsing a hint of his destiny in a mysterious tapestry, twelve-year-old Max McDaniels becomes a student at Rowan Academy, where he trains in "mystics and combat" in preparation for war with an ancient enemy that has been kidnapping children like him.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Max McDaniels pressed his forehead against the train window and watched storm clouds race across the yellow sky.

Back Cover:
"The boy who took up arms that day would have the greatest name in Ireland, but his life would be a short one…."

Inside Front Flap:
Max McDaniels lives a quiet life in the suburbs of Chicago until the day he stumbles upon a mysterious Celtic tapestry depicting the mythic Cattle Raid of Cooley. Now many strange people are interested in Max and his tapestry. His discovery will lead him to Rowan Academy, a secret school where great things await: fantastic creatures, rigorous training, and his very own observatory within a mansion by the sea.

But dark things are waiting, too. When Max learns that priceless artworks and gifted children are disappearing from around the globe, he finds himself in the crossfire of an ancient struggle between good and evil. To survive, he'll have to rely on a shadowy network of agents and mystics, the genius of his roommate, and the frightening power awakening within him.

In his debut novel, author-illustrator Henry H. Neff weaves together fantasy, science fiction, mythology, and folklore. The result is a spellbinding tale with an unforgettable cast of characters and an unmatched sense of wonder and suspense.
