Welcome to Anoone, a world where magic and science share a sometimes uneasy co-existence. Ben Troon is a trainee mage, or wizard, at the Dundonald Academy of Magecraft. He meets Bliss, a fellow student, and they fall deliriously in love. But they are torn apart when Ben is sent to the Magisterium, the heart of Magecraft, in the distant city of Lochranza. When he finds he has lost Bliss to another man, Ben becomes deeply depressed. His mentor, mage and bookseller Ailsa Bleakwill takes his case to the Archmage, Caerlugh. Caerlugh gives him a mission, to travel around the whole of Anoone, and to write a record of his experiences in a journal: the Book.

It is a journey where Ben will discover himself as he learns about his world. He is introduced to his travelling companion, the mysterious Motria, and together they set off into the unknown.
