Zanithia is a breathtaking, magic land on the planet of Manu that is covered in a blanket of sparkling, velvet snow. It is a land where plants and animals vibrate to special, musical frequencies that keep all life in harmony and balance, where love is extended to all, and no life form is regarded as any more superior than another. In this stunning land, music is not only a way of life, but the source of healing all forms of illness and imbalances that prevent evil and destruction from conquering the great planet of Manu. It is also the home to many, fantastic characters that have been appointed to assist in the mystical journey of Javi Muse, to help him learn the spell of Abjurer: "The ability to heal people and other life forms through the gift of music."
JAVI MUSE, a fifteen-year-old, talented, sarcastic, piano player/singer from Seattle, Washington has acne, thick glasses and controlling parents who don't want him to achieve his dreams of playing music. Defiantly, he runs away from home, and innocently boards a ferry boat headed for Whidbey Island. After an unexpected earthquake hits, Javi is magically transported via a Tsunami to the incredible planet of Manu. Little does he know he has been bestowed the gift of Abjurer at birth.
Shortly after Javi regains consciousness from the boat crash, he realizes he is not in Seattle any longer. Javi awakens next to a riverbank where he first meets KATERI, a fifteen-year-old, clumsy, yet wise and gifted singer. Their relationship gets off to a rocky start due to Javi's sarcasm and Kateri's royal attitude. Their relationship blooms throughout the story, thanks in part to their musical bond. Even though they are deeply in denial of their feelings for each other, they cannot resist the obvious endearing character flaws they see in each other and fall deeply in love.
Javi discovers his gift of Abjurer shortly after his first encounter with the beautiful goddess and Queen of Synchronicity, STRENIA. Strenia guides Javi on his fantastic journey with the help of her wildly, eccentric fairies, using upbeat, whimsical music and antics to teach him about synchronicity: "Events that are too much of a 'coincidence' to be a coincidence." Javi, assuming he is either dead from the boat crash or having some kind of a dream, reluctantly but willingly ventures off to the exotic land of Zanithia, where he first understands how he can heal even the sickest child with just a touch of his hand, and the sound of his voice.
Before Javi can fulfill his destiny, he must first overcome The Dark Side of Abjurer. Nick Jamie, the CEO of Positively Pills; a dark and evil pharmaceutical company, builds an empire of hospitals that are meant to enslave sick children by keeping them dependent on the company's drugs. When Javi's magic is discovered he is captured and drugged. Javi's quest is then derailed. Nick Jamie's power looms, and all hope is lost. The planet of Manu is darkened and plagued with illness, and the magic of their land is destroyed. After Javi is captured, we discover that The Dark Abjurer is not who we first imagined. The Dark Abjurer tests Javi's will, and is far more powerful than anyone can imagine. Javi's predecessor and former Abjurer then comes back from the spirit world, and gives Javi a magic potion to help him overcome the powerful effects of Positively Pills' evil concoctions. The Dark Abjurer, while still powerful, is no match at this juncture for the talented Javi and his magic friends who devise a miraculous plot to save the people, and their spectacular land from the evil doings of The Dark Abjurer.
