‘Born to Be’ series

An orphan with a painful past. A wizard running out of time. Together, they’ll discover the most powerful magic is hidden within.

Orphaned at birth and bullied his whole life, Idi never thought he’d grow up to become anything other than the village idiot. When a washed-up wizard tells him he’s destined to become a legendary magician, he’s certain he’s got the wrong urchin. But that doesn’t stop Idi from tagging along on the wizard’s quest to save the furture king of Talia.

After seven decades spent puttering around with his magic, Marcus worries his time for heroics has come and gone. So, when an Oracle entrusts him to train the only boy capable of saving the entire kingdom from dark magic, he jumps at his final shot for glory. As Idi studies magic under his new master, he struggles to push past the painful memories of bullying and self-doubt that block his powers. But with each step along their perilous quest to save the future king, Idi’s confidence grows – along with his healing touch. As dark magic creatures join the race to sway the king’s heart, Idi and Marcus must learn to believe in themselves to free the kingdom from the clutches of evil.

Idi and the Oracle’s Quest is the first book in the exciting Born to Be series of YA fantasy adventure novels. If you like magical creatures, action-packed quests, and journeys of self-discovery, you’ll love Tracy Traynor’s heartfelt coming-of-age story.
