Rob Bailey must balance responsibilities as a boyfriend, as a college student, and as the new wielder of the Sword, an ancient book of spells that has binded itself to him. With a team of hit mages hired by a powerful sorcerer after him, it's trial by fire for the new Occultist, as he learns to handle his powerful magical tome, or suffer at the hands of these deadly enemies. But as he fights for his life, our hero wonders whether he's wielding this enigmatic weapon, or if it's the one in control.
