From official release/information:
In a society where most people control magical furies, Tavi is magicless. He had had hopes that as a student at the Academy, this would become irrelevant, that brains and education would be more valued then raw power. He was wrong. Tavi is harassed by bullies and condemned to remedial magic training. But now Tavi has to handle a crisis that could lead to the destruction of Alera.
