“There is no such thing as magic.” That’s what the mysterious stranger named Cassandra tells Bobby after helping him narrowly escape from the small army of secret agents who surround his house. What follows is an amazing adventure – from indoor forests to vast archives, from a labyrinth of jade mines to the dark recesses of a bear’s lair. Along the way, Bobby will learn that, while there may be no such thing as magic, there is powerful energy within us all. In fact, the entire universe is connected by energy – and he has the rare ability to control it.
Join Bobby and his best friend Jinx as they avoid school bullies, a suspected assassin, and meta-human henchmen alike to unravel the many mysteries of the Academy – the ancient and enigmatic monastery in Tibet where kids with extraordinary potential are sent to study. But is the Academy truly what it claims to be?
