From Goodreads
Life can't get much better for Sam Lock. Popular, good-looking, and with a future as a professional football player. every guy at Stanton High School wishes he were Sam. That is, until his championship football game, when Sam accidentally links with an ancient source of energy known as the Veil and reveals his potential to become a powerful sorcerer.Sam is whisked off to Atlas Crown, a community of sorcerers who utilize the Veil as a part of everyday life. Once there, he trains beside a mute boy who speaks through music, an eternal sage who's the eyes and ears of the Veil, and a beautiful girl who's pretty sure Sam's an idiot.As it becomes clear Sam's meant for power magic-the most feared and misunderstood form of sorcery-people beyond Atlas Crown learn of his dangerous potential. An exiled group of power sorcerers are eager to recruit Sam, believing that he is destined to help them achieve their long-held goal. If they succeed, they could bring about the downfall of not only Atlas Crown. but all humankind.

  1. Wow. I have to admit that from the first two lines, I was NOT expecting where that synopsis was going lol. I actually haven't heard of this one yet, but maybe I'll remember to keep an eye out for some reviews.

    Have a great rest of the week!

  3. Hmmm. Well. That does sound interesting. Jock-turned-sorcerer resists the dark side and saves the world? Sounds like it could have the potential for some really humorous moments. Thanks so much for visiting my WoW! :)

    1. I was imagining some actor when I read the synop :D I also thing the book may have some hilarity too. I was especially intrigued about the sage who could only speak through music.
