Through a series of strange circumstances, Mehdi, a pickpocket making his living in the streets of the Abu caliphate, finds himself partaking in the entrance exam for Hikmadrassa, the most prestigious alchemy school on the continent. He might not know much about enchantments, spells and conjuring up golams, but he will soon discover that he's got a rare power all of his own! As he dives into the world of the golams, Medhi not only meets his first true friends, but he also comes to understand his origins and turns to face his destiny!
Après un examen d'entrée des plus mouvementés, Mehdi n'a qu'une idée en tête : partir le plus vite possible de cette école de fous ! Mais personne n'entre à Hikmadrassa par hasard. Et si le jeune homme n'a manifestement pas le moindre talent alchimique ni l'envie d'aller en cours, il comprend vite que cet endroit magique renferme peut-être le secret de ses origines... et ses premiers véritables amis ! Alors, lorsque le danger guette, tous se dressent et sortent leurs Golams pour des duels hauts en couleurs entre ces créatures fantastiques !
After an eventful entrance contest, Medhi has only one thing on his mind: getting out of this crazy school as soon as possible! But nobody gets into Hikmadrassa by chance. Even though this particular young man clearly has not even the slightest talent in alchemy or the motivation to even show up for his classes, he soon sees that this magical place holds the secret of his origins... and his first true friends!
