While planning out the first volume of my series, I tried to brainstorm on ways the Young Guardians would acquire their superhuman abilities.  I did not want to use cliches such as radioactive waste or genetic mutations.  So, I turned my attention to something that transcends the laws of physics as we know it: magic.  After choosing the concept of magic, I decided on what the spell should be called and I so I decided on naming it the Genesis Spell.  I gave it this name because the word genesis means the beginning of something.  In my characters case, the spell would signify the end of their old lives as mere mortals and the beginning of their new lives as super humans.  According to Tinisha Dolaira, the Genesis Spell is a very rare form of magic that can only be used once in a sorcerer’s lifetime.  What it does is awaken a being’s hidden spiritual powers and alter their appearance to the peak of human conditioning.  However, the Genesis Spell only targets beings who are teenagers.  As an additional side effect, the Genesis Spell also renders its targets immortal in the sense that they will never grow old, get sick, or die of natural causes, but they can be killed if their physical trauma is great enough.  


  1. OK. Ya got my interest.
    My late father was a semi professional magician.
    Personally, magic bored me, but I did spend some years playing an online game: Ultima Online, a game heavily with magic, and if fact, I still play it, just not forty hours a week as I used to.
    I will be back to read some more.

  2. Hi, Grady. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Wow, this Genesis Spell sounds great! I like the way you’ve limited its use and made it so powerful.

      1. A lot of people don’t think that way, which spoils some otherwise good fantasy stories. Sounds to me like your story will be great!

  3. And It’s As Simple an Idea as “Magic”! Now I’m intrigued…..
    Thanks for stopping by my blog too! *Cat* 🙂
