Imagine getting stuck in another world. Would it be a dream come true?
For 12-year-old Tim Hunter, it’s a nightmare. One shove through a magic mirror sent him into a medieval land of castles, kings, and dangerous creatures. No electricity. No running water. No McDonalds. And to make matters even worse, he’s stuck there with his (annoying) older brother and sister — Ron and Kat.
They’re barely there for 30 minutes before they’re chased by a horrible, man-eating creature called a galrog and then rescued — make that arrested — by a grumpy prince named Gavril and his not-so-merry men. From there, things just go downhill.
You see… there’s a prophecy about three strangers from a distant land who will defeat the evil Queen Morissa, take back the land of Tryton, and restore the throne to King Gunther. And who does the king think these three “deliverers” are? You got it — Tim, Ron, and Kat.
When given the choice between fulfilling the prophecy and rotting in a dungeon — until they’re executed, that is — the three siblings are told they must steal the queen’s mirror and bring it back to the king.
Sounds simple, right? Not so fast…
The queen knows they’re coming. And she uses all her power to stop them.
Tim soon finds himself battling enemy soldiers… fighting off galrogs… and even coming face-to-face with a dragon. And he can’t help but wonder…
…Does a kid with zero sword-fighting skills — and the athletic ability of a slug — have what it takes to defeat an evil queen and make it home alive?
