This year at the Wandless Academy feels all wrong to Thea. Her best friend, Magpie, will barely give her the time of day. Ben's been moody and dismissive. Since when did Tess have a boyfriend? And why is Humphrey May, agent for the Federal Bureau of Magic, lurking around the Academy?
Thea is out of sorts—in all ways, magical and otherwise—and that's before she discovers she's an elemental mage, a category of magician so rare that only four others are known to exist.
Now the Federal Bureau of Magic needs Thea's help to unlock the mysterious white cube—the same cube found over the summer in the professor's house, the same cube the dangerous Alphiri are still after. To stay ahead of the Alphiri and the wiles of the FBM, Thea needs her friends—all of them.
From a world woven with magic and suspense comes Alma Alexander's Cybermage, the final installment of the richly invented Worldweavers trilogy.

Alma Alexander is the author of several previous novels, including Worldweavers: Gift of the Unmage and Worldweavers: Spellspam. She was born in Yugoslavia, grew up in the United Kingdom and Africa, and now lives in the state of Washington.From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 Up—The conclusion of this trilogy finds Thea back at the Wandless Academy for a new school year, where she discovers that her friends have grown apart over the summer. Fortunately for Thea, the Federal Bureau of Magic once again needs help, and she and her friends are called on to open a mysterious elemental cube. The cube turns out to contain Nikola Tesla who, in the world of Worldweavers, is the only elemental mage in history able to control all four elements. Thea is also declared an elemental mage, though her powers still appear to be primarily over computers. This change in her status appears to be an authorial device to put her and Tesla on equal footing. An overly complex plot to help Tesla regain his powers and release him from the cube makes the story slow going. In fact, the world building is ever-so-slightly off pitch. New technologies, characters' abilities, and magics are created seemingly at the whim of the author and don't feel the least bit organic. Sadly, the relationships among the teen characters, which were critical to the appeal of the series, have fallen by the wayside here. The ending is oddly open-ended and lacks the typical closure found in final installments.—Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH
