Trevor Blake has always known he possessed magical gifts. For instance, he can conjure objects at a distance. Since he was young, he has suppressed his magic lest it draw hostility from the sceptical, ungifted, and intolerant. In the small farming community where Trevor lives with his family, magic is forbidden - sometimes from fear...or jealously. In the bustling coastal city of Port-of-Lords, Trevor hears of a group of the gifted who have banded together in a secret underground community. Trevor makes his way there to join them, but no sooner does he arrive than trouble begins..show more
