The Curse of ArkadyBook - 2002
A long time ago, two great sorcerers fought a duel to determine the fate of the world. Magic itself was ripped from our world, its power kept secret by a handful of enchanters. The world of Magicks, however, still exists-and whoever controls the Gates controls both worlds. In The Magickers... Enter Jason Adrian and his friends-who have been recruited by Gavan Rainwater into the most unusual summer camp on earth-Camp Ravenwyng. There, they will learn about their own special talents. They'll develop their magick powers and unlock the secrets of controlling them. To Jason, it seems like a dream come true. But there is one thing he will have to do before he leaves this very special camp: face the evil minions of the Dark Hand... In the Curse of Arkady... The summer is over-but not the war between the Magickers and the Dark Hand. Jason and his Magicker friends struggle to master their talents-while keeping their unique skills a secret from their non-Magicker friends, families-and foes. Jason has just learned that his own talent is his ability to find and open the gates between worlds. But, this power is sure to make him a target of the Black Hand...
