Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<br> Sixteen-year-old Seph McCauley has spent the past three years getting kicked out of one exclusive private school after another. And it's not his attitude that's the problem. It's the trail of magical accidents-lately, disasters-that follow in his wake. Seph is a wizard, orphaned and untrained--and his powers are escalating out of control.<br> <br> After causing a tragic fire at an after-hours party, Seph is sent to the Havens, a secluded boys' school on the coast of Maine. At first, it seems like the answer to his prayers. Gregory Leicester, the headmaster, promises to train Seph in magic and initiate him into his mysterious order of wizards. But Seph's enthusiasm dampens when he learns that training comes at a steep cost, and that Leicester plans to use his students' powers to serve his own dangerous agenda.<br> <br> In this companion novel to the exciting fantasy The Warrior Heir , everyone's got a secret to keep: Jason Haley, a fellow student who's been warned to keep away from Seph; the enchanter Linda Downey, who knew his parents; the rogue wizard Leander Hastings, and the warriors Jack Swift and Ellen Stephenson. This wizard war is one that Seph may not have the strength to survive.

Sixteen-year-old Seph, a powerful wizard, gets caught up in a conflict between the Wizard Council, smaller groups with their own agendas, and a rogue politician--the Dragon--whose identity and whereabouts the others seek to know.

Horn Book Review

Abandoning (for the moment) Jack (The Warrior Heir), this sequel follows Seph, an untrained wizard who enters an international magical-political dispute when an unscrupulous faction leader tries to recruit him. The feudal structures and modern upheavals of this world within our own are well delineated, and though relationships tend toward the tepid, adrenaline flows freely from both action and intrigue.
