It's the warlock's first time attending a magical school. In this school students are different magic users, but he is the only warlock. He has been repeatedly bullied throughout the school year; one time he is even injured. In the end he finishes the year and moves on to the next one.

He has studied spells and in the final demonstration casts a modified spell, which saves every one from dying due to the activation of a magical artefact (cylinder? orb?) by another student.

I would have read this story near 2015.

  • Can you clarify what makes a Warlock different from other magicians on this book? It's a term with a lot of different uses.

  • There are several types of magic users in book: warlock, sorcerer and some more (I don't remember). Warlock is considered weakest but he studies (as I remember) every aspect of different sorcerer magic used by his classmates.

1 Answer 1


The book is called Caster's Spell (A Mage Tale Book 1) by E. D. Watley.

The first Warlock to enter a formal school of magic, Wesley, delves into a world he scarcely knows, ill-equipped, unprepared, and by far unwelcome. Adamant in proving that his kind belongs, he aspires to someday reach the title of All Powerful Mage—a task, he learns, much easier said than done.

With hundreds of students itching to take him down, instructors baring a fanatical intent to fail him, and an unfolding mystery behind the relic created by a shroud of a man, known as Benjamin Caster, does Wesley stand a chance at passing the final exams? He certainly hopes so...

...and the rest of the world depends on it.

  • Really good of you to self-answer, that's appreciated! :) But for the sake of future readers searching for the same book, could you please edit into your answer the elements that match what you described in the question? As well as a summary, for instance?

  • @aLLex: I hope you don't mind, but I added a Goodreads link and its summary to your answer.
