Following a nuclear fallout, magik starts to surface in the world again. The leader of the only surviving city in North America, has taken her people prisoner. Kara McKenzie, is a sixteen-year-old girl living in Yorklyn City. She is on the fast track to becoming a nuclear scientist. When she rekindles an old friendship with Ryan and Killian. Shortly after, things begin to get weird. She starts getting headaches she can't explain, and her world is turned upside down when Angel starts the manhunt for a Descendant who has infiltrated the city. People start getting executed without reason, and darkness befalls them all. When Kara finds out a dark secret about the twins, she must make a choice. One that could disrupt the future of the world.

The Lessons of Magik is an engaging tale with complex, relatable characters. McGinnis can spin a fantasy. I hope the series develops and continues to improve.
