The Apprentice and the Vortex
by Alister Laurence
Drek is apprenticed to Boglin, the most powerful wizard in all of Glamaddon, and is about to begin his training in the magical arts. Unfortunately, the country is afflicted by a lethargy spell, amplified by a magical vortex, before he can start. Boglin must track down the wizard responsible for this crime before the population dies from a complete absence of any desire to save themselves.
