Magic. A Rough Guide

50 years after the war on magic, natural born magicians are in hiding. Most are captured, locked away and experimented on; others are mutated into vicious, military beasts or mindless menial workers. At night the cities and countryside fall silent as flesh eating creatures emerge to hunt, disappearing at sunrise. All the while, a darker more ancient evil is at work; more dangerous than any threat from magicians or monsters. Lizzy, a young magician, escapes from a prison laboratory. A few weeks later a magical spell destroys a housing block killing hundreds of ordinary people, and Chris, a newly awakened magician, is accused of terrorism. Coincidence? You know what magicians say “Everything is Connected".
