Alarick Brandon is the powerful wizard who operates The Keep, a refuge for magical people fleeing the persecution of the Ministry.

Simplistic nonsense

Magic allows a wizard to change himself into a bird large enough for a person to ride on but is ineffective at fighting a war? MC finds a woman with a talent with books and he tries to assign her to the kitchen because he doesn’t know what to do with her.

The writing is clear and well crafted. The charac
