Pre-order for The Ideal Apprentice: Havensgate Chronicles 2 is live! Order here.


Traumatized teenagers shouldn’t practice magik.
And Tommy is no exception.
Reckless, sarcastic, and too clever for his own good, Tommy has managed to insult or offend nearly everyone in his first six months at the Academy. Only a kitchen servant, a professor older than magik itself, and Master Rezdin’s cat can see beyond his rough upbringing and thorny demeanor. But making good marks and staying out of trouble are just the beginning.
With the oppressive Demystified Zone gone, a new era of magikal freedom dawns for Havensgate. But the failed coup and the Darke wizard Damir, still cast long shadows.
Master Crispin, the newly minted High Commissioner, is tasked with the dubious honor of establishing a treaty before Monterron ignites a war. He’s determined to find the connection between Damir, Monterron, and the spontaneous fires plaguing the Havensgate populace. And the trail will lead him straight to Tommy.
Tommy must face the darkness, within and without, if Havensgate has a chance at preventing a catastrophic magikal war.
This magical sequel to Arrington’s debut novel promises epic adventure, spectacular sorcery, and Arrington’s signature sense of humor.

The Accidental Apprentice: Havensgate Chronicles Book 1

Who in their right mind teaches a traumatized preteen magic? Ask Rezdin.

As one of the most skilled wizards in the isolated city-state of Havensgate, Rezdin is poised to impress the king. But his patron, the Baron Von Dappenshien, is charged with treason. Implicated in a dark plot to overthrow the kingdom, all thoughts of courtly glory go out the window. Rezdin must go to ground in a city he hasn’t truly lived in for years. His only hope is Tommy, the savvy street urchin, determined to outwit his impoverished circumstances.

Tommy’s price for this help?

The power to heal his sister.

But a little power can be a dangerous thing for a desperate young man, and a little ego just as dangerous for his teacher.

Forces foreign and domestic will put them both in the crosshairs of dangerous darke wizards, scheming Lords and Ladies, and even a few friends.

The truth, the future, and Rezdin’s loyalties will all collide, as he seeks to piece his life and the kingdom back together.

The Accidental Apprentice is a YA epic fantasy adventure full of daring magicians, wisecracking familiars, and political intrigue. It’s richly built world will draw you onto the streets of Havensgate and beyond.

Unspun: A collection of Tattered Fairy Tales

Whatever happened to “happily ever after”?
Heroes search for happiness, villains plot revenge, and nothing is as easy as it once seemed. Gretel suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, an orphan girl questions Rumpelstiltskin’s legacy, a monster cat searches for a child to eat, and the pied piper realizes stealing a hundred and thirty children may not have been his smartest idea.
Fairy tales have endured for centuries even though—or perhaps because—their conclusions are often more unsettling than satisfying. In Unspun, eleven storytellers come together to challenge and explore a few of those classic tales. Unexpected twists are sure to provoke both thought and laughter.

Gorgeous illustrations by Ruth Nickle accompany each piece. Find it on Amazon
