Ages 8 and up. On an island, there is a city that was saved from a devastating plague by the magic woven into its walls. Encircling the city is a vast wood of ancient trees that feeds the earth with magic. Oscar spends his days grinding herbs and dreaming of the wizards who lived on the island long ago. His world is small; the real world is vast and unpredictable, and Oscar does not quite fit in it. But children in the city are falling ill, and something sinister lurks in the wood. Oscar has long been content, knowing that the magic from the trees will keep the island safe. But now even magic may not be enough to save it.
