What do you learn here...at the Academy? Wirt asks. Magic? The responsibility to use your powers responsibly? Uh...something like that, his roommate Spencer said. More like how to rule worlds. Wirt, is used to being shuffled from foster home to foster home, adopting a devil-may-care attitude toward the world along the way. Now he s in a school he can t escape, learning to develop his latent magical abilities, for what use, he doesn't know...to save his world or to destroy it...
A new student has entered The Alchemists Academy, and he brings with him an explosive power that threatens the Academy and the legend of Merlin. Wirt thought he was the only bad boy at the Academy, but he was wrong. Not only is Roland Black worse than Wirt, but a new teacher had replaced one of their beloved teachers, and she has more planned for Wirt and his friends than just lesson plans. Alana, his crush has grown prettier, and now he is rivals for her attention with not only his best friend Spencer, but newcomer Roland, as well. On top of that, it is their second year, and the year where all the students must pass a test to move on to the Elite Class at the Academy. The Elite Class is the only class in the third year at the Academy, and the students who fail will be sent home, others will face something even deadlier.
Excerpt from Elemental Explosions
“Roland,” Wirt said. “Is there much more? Your stuff is taking up all the space.”
“Like you need much of it.”
Finally, Roland pulled out a sphere the size of a basketball. At first glance, it seemed to be black, but Wirt could see flashes of other colors too, as though they were swirling just under the surface. As he watched, the movement of those colors seemed to accelerate, and as it did so they started to shine through, glowing in a way barely restrained by the outer layer of the ball.
“It’s called a quantum ball,” Roland said, spinning it idly between his hands until the colors beneath the surface shone like stars. “It’s used for playing hyper-leap.”
“Hyper-leap?” Wirt asked. “Is that some kind of game?”
Roland nodded. “They don’t play it much now. You throw the quantum ball at your opponent, and they have to use transportation magic to get themselves away. If they just try to run, the ball follows them.”
“And when it catches them?” Wirt asked.
“It disintegrates them.
