[NOTE: We're re-running our review from the March 2008 issue.]
Thea saved the word from Nothing in Worldweavers: Gift of the Unmage and she has to save it again -- this time from spam. Someone has figured out how to send spells as spam and it's set off by just reading the email. Computers aren't supposed to be able to do magic in her universe -- so how can it be stopped?From official release/information:
At first, they seemed like harmless practical jokes, but now, for the students at the Wandless Academy, the spellspams are getting worse. Thea thought she was the only one who could reach through the computer using magic, but someone else is out there, someone bent on more than just stirring up trouble. Someone with a dark agenda from a whole new world.
This sequel to Worldweavers: Gift of the Unmage ups the ante on a fantasy world that is rich and nuanced, like our own, but with a core of wildly original magic.
