Here's an introductory message from Mooderino:
Really happy to bring my second story to Gravity Tales. 'The Good Student' updates weekly and is very different from 'How to Avoid Death On a Daily Basis'. The extra time and length I allow for chapters makes it a much more detailed and in depth look at the world of a boy without magic ability at a school for prospective mages.
Hope you all enjoy it.
And this is the synopsis:
Nic Tutt is a good student. He excels at all subjects. But his education serves only one purpose—to gain entry into the Ransom School.
Ransom is the most prestigious school in the country. Its alumni are destined to become the future leaders of Ranvar. Politicians, statesmen and, in some exceptional cases, mages. Only the brightest and the best get into Ransom.
But Nic doesn't care about any of that. He isn't determined to get into Ransom to further his prospects or better his career opportunities. He has another reason to want to enter Ranvar's most famous school.
