The year is 1655, and Isaac is boarding with a family that runs an apothecary shop in Grantham, England. Here, he learns to mix his own healing potions and marvels at the secret powers of nutmeg and dried newts. In this atmosphere of magic and mystery, the determined schoolboy sets out to master the hidden powers that make the world work. He’s determined to learn the art of wizardry.Isaac’s quest takes him deep into the heart of the Great Age of Magic—into the world of sorcerers conjuring cloaks of invisibility, wizards divining the future and alchemists searching for the philosophers stone.In 1693, now a famous scientist and mathematician, he has already pushed the world into the Scientific Revolution and turned it upside down with his theory of gravity.
