In a bustling metropolis where magic is outlawed, a six-year-old child is found inside a locked bank vault. A scrap of paper reveals his name: Bran Hambric. The child remembers nothing of his life before the vault. Only magic could have done this.
On the third night of the third month in 2003, Kaleb Nation, age 14, suddenly imagined a boy and a banker on a roof, waiting for a burglar to come. From that original idea was born the story of Bran Hambric, which would take most of Kaleb's teenage years to write.
With no memory of his past, six-year old Bran Hambric magically appeared inside a secure bank vault. For years, he has lived with the man who found him, wondering why he was left behind -- until one night, eight years later, he is suddenly confronted by a maddened creature, intent on kidnapping the young teenager and tantalizing him with ints about his true past.
Within hours, Bran finds himself at the center of a plot set in motion years before his birth: a plot his mother created, along with a deadly curse—a curse that her former masters need Bran to complete…
Haunted by the spirit of his mother in a city where magic is illegal, Bran must undo the crimes of his past...before it is too late.
