Pronto285 | 3 comments I REALLY want to find this book again, I read it during my "I want to be magic phase" somewhere between 2002 and maybe 2008? I THINK it was published in that time period. It had this kid be recruited to a school/program that may have taught magic, or may have just had a lot of fantasy aspects. I think there were three main characters, with a sortve harry potter dynamic, and as I said, it reminded me a lot of the hound of rowan books. I only remember a few details. I know there was a crab demon monster, and possibly many other demons along that thing. I remember that early in the first book the group was told to pick a weapon to fight these ooze things as a test, and he picked a flashlight. And I'm FAIRLY sure that later in the series he had to go through a training program that may have involved killing a chicken. The test was that you pass if you either kill the chicken unflinchingly, or flatly refuse to do so. Sorry, that's all I remember. It was a series published some time around the hound of rowan if I remember correctly.
