Unofficial Detective by Kathryn Wells

For his whole life, Thordric has been told that his magic is dangerous, and that he must never use it. All over Dinia, half-wizards are treated the same, their magic labelled as dangerous and uncontrollable.

Unofficial detective

When High Wizard Kalljard dies under mysterious circumstances, it falls to young Thordric to solve the case. The problem? The deed was done by magic, and though Thordric is a half-wizard, he has never fully used his powers.

To prove himself right and find the person responsible, Thordric has to learn how to control his own powers. But can he learn fast enough, and find the perpetrator in time?
