"Harry Potter meets Da Vinci Code"... that's how reviewers and critics have described this middle grade magical tale, the first book in a spellbinding series.

From myths and legends 500 years old, comes a fantastic adventure, even though Archibald was not looking for one... Exploring his grandma's creepy manor, he just stumbled upon an ancient terrestrial globe, which turns out to be much more than an old relic. When he unlocks the storm trapped inside, Archibald gets whisked into the unknown, a mysterious land where a battle born in the Middle Ages is still unfolding.

In the world of Lemurea, mostly forest, home to small wonders and great scares, it's light versus darkness, magic versus fire... witches versus dragons. But not any kind of witches, an army of young girls, lost in time. And not your usual dragons, but the most intriguing creatures, half human, half beast.

Through this unforgettable journey, Archibald will learn the true meaning of courage, friendship and tolerance. Meanwhile, left behind, his sister Hailee sets out on a quest across London to find out what happened to him, uncovering a dark secret and going through her own coming of age odyssey.

Two stories, two plot threads, running parallel but tightly intertwined. Two worlds, on a perilous collision course...

A FAMILY SECRET that was supposed to remain buried forever...

A MYSTERY GLOBE, last link to a time of great fears and superstitions...

A RISK-AVERSE BOY, who thought he knew everything...

A HIDDEN WORLD, where the night never ends...

FANTASTIC CREATURES, the likes of which you have never seen...

AN EPIC ADVENTURE, filled with magic, heart and humor. For 9 and up.
