Hitting the books takes on a whole new meaning when a teenage Zatanna Zatara enrolls at Mystik Universityan otherworldly academy that promises to teach its young charges how to master their unique and often dangerous magical abilities.
Under the leadership of Dr. Rose Psychic (and her body-sharing husband, Dr. Occult), Zatanna and her fellow studentsincluding Davit Sargon, June "Enchantress" Moone and brooding bad boy Sebastian Faustbegin to learn the secrets of harnessing and directing their powers. But these introductory lessons may not be enough to save them from the deadly force known as the Malevolence, whose triumph in the not-too-distant future Dr. Psychic has already foreseen.
For Zatanna, however, this dark prophecy is overshadowed by more immediate concernsamong them, the obsessive attentions of the queen-bee Thriae Society, the cold-blooded calculations of Mr. E and what really happened when she first manifested her backwards-speaking magic and sent her father to lleH!
