'In a world terrified of magic, a boy is abandoned to the worst school in the world, a place designed to crush all magic out of him - GRINDGRIM. But Runcible Jones has to learn magic, to uncover the truth about his father's death on another world.

'Hurled through a gate to magical Iltior, Runcie's arrival begins a war that will spread to Earth. And why is Lord Shambles, the blackest sorcerer on Iltior, hunting Runcie?

'To uncover the truth, Runcie must fight the dreadful sorcerer.
