The New York Times bestseller, now fully updated to include the complete seven-volume series. Who was the real Nicholas Flamel? How did the Sorcerer’s Stone get its power? Did J. K. Rowling dream up the terrifying basilisk, the seductive veela, or the vicious grindylow? And if she didn’t, who did? Millions of readers around the world have been enchanted by the magical world of wizardry, spells, and mythical beasts inhabited by Harry Potter and his friends.

And books of spells and curses were highly popular during the Middle Ages. From Amulets to Zombies, you’ll also learn: • how to read tea leaves • where to find a basilisk today • how King Frederick II of Denmark financed a war with a unicorn horn • who the real Merlin was • how to safely harvest mandrake root • who wore the first invisibility cloak • how to get rid of a goblin • why owls were feared in the ancient world • what really lies beyond the Veil • the origins of our modern-day “bogeyman,” and more.

What would you do, if you suddenly found yourself in a world where the roles of the ruled and their rulers have been swapped? Ibrahim is a magician (humans who wield magic w/ artifacts) and a gifted one at that. He wasn't like the other magicians, he was forgiving and benevolent. At the request of his human companion and best friend, Wino, and with a flick of his wand, Ibrahim would feed thousands, part oceans to clear a path, and bless those around him with abundance. At the end of the trips they embarked upon, Ibrahim would hibernate in order to restore his strength. Upon waking however, Ibrahim finds the world's dynamics have shifted and he is now a second class citizen unworthy of such flamboyant gestures. As a magician, his way of life has been deemed a threat to society and could land him in prison. His best friend Wino has found peace with the newfound stability and welcomes Ibrahim back into the fold, opening his door and inviting Ibrahim into his home. Despite the indisputable prosperity delivered by the shift in power, Ibrahim still longs for his way of life and considers working with those despicably oppressed magicians in order to reclaim his rightful independence. But is he willing to challenge the way of life that Wino and so many others have benefitted from?
