The Magic and Mayhem Series by Gillian Duce
Not the same old, dull, over told story of young witches and their life. The story of a teenage witch, Boh Pierce as he slowly becomes an adult in a world where an evil of great magnitude is growing. ‘Human’ tales of all other beings lose credit and the basis of all good in any being is seen in their actions rather than their appearance. The M & M series follow his transformation from awkward, comical teen to competent, young adult witch, while he and others protect the world from threats.
Boh Pierce is like any other fifteen year old at the beginning of last century. He and his close friends believe that vampires and werewolves are not only real but also evil. It is a challenge, then, to his way of thinking to find out that there is more to the hidden world then spoken of in ‘human’ stories. He is not only a witch, but his uncle a werewolf. This is the story of Boh as he stumbles with six other young apprentice witches to find their way in the hidden world of the other races that inhabit the earth. The truth of witches being the protectors of all races, clans and beings. The underworld which humanity is kept naïve of; with exception of a few.
Boh’s class is sent on their first mission to protect the migration of the low-land elves as they make their way to their summer lodgings in the east. They are made aware of Boron, son of the dwarf monarchy, King Nevin, and his pursuit of the throne of the low-land dwarves. Boh and his class are caught up in the battle which leads to the end of a two hundred year old war.
