A wizard's Ordeal is intensely personal, and sometimes (though not always) intensely dangerous. Each Ordeal is tailored to the wizard who may pass it, or fail to pass. And every one of these inductions into the world of errantry reveals something vital about the inner nature of the wizard-to-be who's embraced the challenge offered them by the Powers that Be.
On Ordeal tells the unique tales of the wizardly initiations of four notable wizards of the Young Wizards universe -- Roshaun ke Nelaid, Mamvish fsh Wimsih, Ronan Nolan Jnr, and (new for 2021) one most unusual Owl. Watch as a disaffected alien prince, a lizard who wants to become a wizard (by eating one if necessary), an ironically emo kid from the Dublin suburbs, and a single-mindedly outraged bird get to grips, up close and personal, with the Powers that Be... and come into the kind of power only those on errantry can dream of.
Among them, these four epic tales of four very different introductions to the world of wizardry comprise more than 140,000 words of new, canonical Young Wizards material.
