The Rithmatist

Joel has wanted to be a rithmatist his whole life, but it just wasn't meant to be.  At least he has free tuition at Armedius Academy where he can snatch every crumb of knowledge about the rithmatic arts as possible.

The rithmatists have an important job, defending the United Isles from the wild Chalklings at Nebrask.  Chalkings are two dimensional creatures drawn with chalk.  When a rithmatist does the drawing, these creatures can come to life.  At Nebrask the tower is full of wild chalklings whose origins are unknown.  These creatures are in a constant battle to escape and devour anyone they come across.  The Rithmatist use defensive lines and circles to keep them contained.

Now the rithmatists seem to be under attack.  Several students have been kidnapped in rithmatc battles.  The chalk lines are there as evidence, but there are also strange markings no one has seen before.  Joel's job as a summer research assistant for a professor of rithmatics puts him right in the middle of the investigation and in the sights of a kidnapper who is more dangerous than anyone suspects.
