Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Here's the first book in a brilliant new trilogy by the author of "The Navigator." The Ring of Five, set at a school for spies, is full of surprises as well as fascinating questions about loyalty, destiny, and what it means to be a spy. <br>Danny Caulfield doesn't know how he ended up at a mysterious academy called Wilsons. A few of the students are pretty scary. Someone tries to murder him. Even the ravens that haunt the school seem to be against him. Yet he also finds friends: Les, an exceptional thief; Dixie, who has an unsettling talent; and Vandra, a physick with special powers. <br>It turns out that Danny is destined for a terrifying mission. As he embarks on his training, he is shocked and secretly thrilled to discover that he seems to have all the natural gifts of the perfect spy--most importantly, the ability to betray. <br>Eoin McNamee's background as an author of adult thrillers informs this exhilarating, atmospheric adventure.
