Magic is everything to Noelle. She loves it so much that she puts up with her horrible job at the Mages' Guild to practice it. The hours are long, the pay is rock-bottom, and the boss is a nightmare! But as long as she has magic, she can withstand the hardships. At least, until the day she hears these dreaded words:"You're fired." Noelle's hometown in the outskirts of the kingdom doesn't offer many alternatives for a career in magic—especially now that she's been blacklisted from guild work! Just when it seems like all hope is lost, Noelle's old friend Luke shows up to give her an opportunity she never could have imagined: a job as a royal court magician. Now Noelle is living the dream, rubbing shoulders with the kingdom's greatest magicians and showing off her skills. She has a beautiful new workplace and a generous new boss, but how will she cope with intense entrance exams, her marriage-obsessed mother, and the rules of etiquette? What awaits Noelle in her magical new career?
