Overview

The Magickers (Magickers Series #1) by Emily Drake

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...

About the Author

Emily Drake lives in a sand castle by the sea…well, actually, it’s a dusty house full of wonderful old books, cats, and a rambunctious cocker spaniel puppy. And, on a good day when the smog clears, you can see the Pacific Ocean. When she’s not reading or talking with the cats or playing with the puppy, she is thinking of Bailey-isms and writing. Somewhere in the house is a grown-up daughter who likes to read and write histories of the fantastic and brings home pottery from class which looks as if it must have been made in another realm, so she fits in extremely well. Emily is married to a nice gentleman who works very hard in the real world and is often a bit bemused by the goings-on in the sand castle but has a good sense of humor about it all. There are other sons and a daughter who are scattered to the Trade Winds but who write and call home often. All in all, a good day is one in which books can be read and written and enjoyed by anyone Emily can reach. At the moment, the pup only considers a book as a good chew-toy, but she’s hoping he’ll outgrow that. Emily does not normally talk about herself like this, but the cats insisted upon it, like royalty.

My cousin gave me this book to read and when I first looked at the cover I thought, 'Eeh, I don't know...' But I read it and, WOW!! That book was awesome!! Since my cousin gets them all before I do, I just get all of the books in this series from her. The Magickers was a thrilling tale that made me want to read more. I would love to have that experiance at a summer camp! Also, I would love to have friends like that. It would be a neat feeling to have that big of a secret, but I don't know if I could keep it from my best friend!

This is an incredibly original book. The characters have diverse personalities but can still band together when needed.The story combines different legends and the adds its own unique twist to the story, making it very modern. It has ghosts, thieves,spies, indians,hippies, and a whole lot of Magickers. My overall judgement of this book......Read it,you'll love it!!!!!!!!!!!

While expecting another Harry Potter lookalike, I was delightfully surprised to find myself caught up with the out of the ordinary adventures of this middle school age group of kids. Every page brought the unexpected, and the characters were so well developed, believable, and entertaining. I loved Bailey's quirkiness, Jason's vulnerability, and the whole lot of quirky camp 'counselors'. Emily Drake certainly has captured the essence of this age group and has brought along with it a delicious sense of magic and what it might do. This obviously will have a sequel and I am very anxious to see it!

Emily Drake's first novel about middle school children learning about life and magic was wonderful! I couldn't put down the excerpt and I can't wait to get my hands on the whole book! I love Bailey and her slightly-off quotations, and all the characters are brilliant! Drake captures all the insecurities of those impressionable years and reflects them masterfully in the youths that she writes about.
