Trevor Blake has always known he possessed magical gifts. But in the small farming town where Trevor lives with his family, the practice of magic is forbidden--and those who reveal their gifts are persecuted. So when his uncle tells him about the underground gifted Community in the city of Port-Of-Lords, Trevor and his best friend, Les Simonton, set off to find it. There, they hope to receive training in the use of their powers.

As soon as Trevor and Les arrive in Port-of-Lords, the trouble begins. Unwittingly, the boys become embroiled in a power struggle among the Community’s members. Not sure of whom to trust or where to turn, Trevor and Les may be forced to call upon the most perilous power of all....

Read from the Book

1 A C hange of Direction Trevor Blake leaned against the kitchen wall, watching his mother slice beef and fit it into rolls hot from the oven. The yeasty aroma of the fresh-baked rolls, the spicy scent of cinnamon-laden pear tarts, the savory odor of the roast all conspired to distract him from his mother''s lecture. Trevor, are you listening to me? she asked as she slipped the beef rolls into a box and held it out to him. Yes, Mom. Grinning, he accepted the box. You said to hurry, don''t miss the bus, and be careful with my money. He hadn''t heard any of that, but it was a safe guess. And be sure to get good, practical clothing. I know you want citified things so you won''t stand out when you get to the university, but it''s more important to get good material that will hold up and keep you warm through the winter. I''ll remember. I doubt it. With a sigh, she wiped her hands on her apron. I wish I could go with you, but your father needs me here. Do try to be sensible for once. He laughed, knowing well what really kept her from coming with him. His father could have spared her for a day, but she was terrified of the newfangled buses, which had replaced horse-drawn coaches less than two years ago and which did indeed break down with alarming frequency. Planting a kiss on her cheek, he said, I''d better get going. Lands, yes. She glanced at the kitchen clock. It''s getting late. You don''t want to miss the bus. No, he didn''t, but it rarely arrived on time, so he didn''t hurry
