Even in a seemingly boring village like Kløfta, exciting things can happen. Simen is offered an apprenticeship in the fantastic world of magic when he happens upon the world's last living magician. The magical knowledge is close to dying out, and there are evil forces at work in the world. It is with great haste that Gregers the Magician attempts to train Simen as his apprentice, but the enemy eventually does away with the magician, leaving Simen completely alone. Belz and Ebub continues where the exciting and nerve-wracking first book concluded. Terrifying Ebub has escaped from the underground prison in Gnosis Hollow, and has been joined by a feline ally, Belz. In his despair over Greger's death, Simen becomes easy prey. Belz and Ebub require Simen for a very special purpose.
