Meet Nick Rostov…one day he’s the son of the worst magician in Vegas and the next he’s descended from a long line of Russian Royalty on his dead mother’s side of the family. Oh yeah, he also learns that Damien, the best magician in all of Vegas is really his third cousin and not just some über-talented illusionist but a real magician; think Harry Potter minus the wands and pointy hats…and so is he.
Nick learns the hard way that the family’s enemies, led by the crazed Rasputin, will stop at nothing to gain access to his powers so they can find the eternal hourglass…a device so powerful it can stop time.

If you were Nick what would you do? When you’re a magician in Vegas what else can you do but join the show? Hopefully he’ll live long enough to meet everyone’s expectations.

This is a great start to a promising series.
