Jack lead a life filled with ordinary, granted there were bullies who picked on him in school but they were pretty ordinary. His life changes when he forgets to take his daily medicine and suddenly he's stronger and faster. But he nearly kills someone and it's the start of an adventure. He's actually a member of the Weirlind, an underground society of people with magical powers. He's a warrior, one of the few left and the wizards want him dead or fighting for them. He just wants to live. I did like the story and the characters, they're interesting and the interweaving of magical and mundane is quite a lot of fun and his friends stand by him well. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series.
