Board the train once again as a new group of students comes to Hogwarts! Our hero, Liam Wren, will be sorted and introduced to some new friends. He'll also tangle with a rival. Liam has some well-developed magical abilities, but school magic is something altogether different, and not all of it comes easy for him. Then, he will be troubled by strange dreams, and the haunting words, "Wizard, where are the egg theives?"
