Okay, before Cogito goes and posts that "Concepts Mean Nothing" template post, let me explain this: I know that my concept gives nothing away about my style of writing, but neither do the blurbs on the backs of books. So as you read this, imagine that you're in a library and you've just picked up this book and something similar to the following paragraph is on the back. Would you check it out? Salem Stone had just been inducted into the Arcademy, the school where children are taught the skills that their ancestors had possessed so long ago. Namely, telekineses, telepathy, and clairvoyance. There, he meets the strongheaded Prince Alexander, the quiet Tabytha, and the beautiful Caspar Twins. He must fight a battle with both himself and his foes as the Averian Empire threatens to overtake the country. Will he master his power and accept the present over the past? Okay, that was a REALLY sucky blurb, but I'm in a hurry. Just for some extra info, Salem lives with a human family who adopted him, and the Arcans were the original civilization, all of whom had psychic powers. Now, what used to be Arcan Lad is now the country of Amaranth. And Caspar is a country, not a name.
