When Angst turned 40, he knew it was over. His chance to be a knight had long since passed. Not to mention that Angst is also one of the few able to wield "the magics" which has been outlawed for 2,000 years. But when Unsel is besieged by dangerous monsters without warning, the world that shunned magic now turns to Angst for help. And he is happy to listen - once his back stops hurting. On the edge of a mid-life crisis, Angst drags his reluctant friends along with him on an adventure. He's not sure where they're going, or even if they'll survive. But he knows this is his one chance to be a hero because the only way to fight magic is with magic.
