The first page, Prologue, has been released in 11 October in 2014.
Unlike The Sorcerer's Apprentice that set in 2000s at New York City, the fan-fiction series is set in a fictional Scottish town named Trostville in alternate, steampunk world of The Sorcerer's Apprentice film universe where the story chronologically began from the year of 1938, prior to World War 2. In the first part, the series involves friendship between the Mr. Blake, wise but mysterious sorcerer whom actually one of Merlin's three original apprentices with his slightly clumsy but very competent apprentice named Raido (1930s steampunk reality counterpart of Dave Stutler), a young apprentice whom enrolls in Crossmages Academy and works as a private detective in his part times. After discovering both true nature of his master and his destiny as the Prime Merlinean, Raido and his friends set out to fight Morganian forces whom evil plans threatened to alter the course of mankind's history.
In this Fan-fiction series, aside Sorcerers(humans whom innately possesses magic), another kind of human race that serves as sorcerers' distant cousins also introduced. This said race is Magus, a human species has evolved to the point that they more like magical creatures than regular humans. Magus has all powers of Sorcerers, but they have additional powers that both Sorcerers and humans lacks: Regenerative Healing Factor, immunity to Vampirism, and ability to magically control their own body cells into either weapons or armor or even shapeshift into more monstrous form called Whitelight Magic.
In July 20, 2015, it was announced that the fan-fiction series plotline would be influenced with elements of Lovecraftian works, which began from it's tie-in story Truth Behind The Salem Witch Trial.
