The gods battled for thousands of years before they established balance in Lemuria; the children of the blessing are about to upset that balance.
When key events prophesied thousands of years ago finally take place, those who lust for power will do anything they must to take control—even if that means killing the children of the blessing. The children of the blessing have never met. Renn wants to be a farmer and Avaris a warrior, but their birth and blessing set an ancient prophecy in motion that promises to shift the balance of power on the continent of Lemuria.
The two boy’s dreams and innocence are shattered by those determined to influence the events to come and seize power for themselves. When loved ones are killed and homes destroyed both boys must flee from horrifying creatures and powerful magic users. Renn has to cross the continent to reach the safety of Elder Island where he can receive training from the Lore Masters; Avaris decides to follow the evil creatures that have ruined his life to caves beneath the Cragg Mountains where the surviving members of his tribe have been forced into slave labor.
The Grand Warlock, Kahn Devin, has determined that both boys will either join with him or die.
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?

Campbell’s Cove is a small town surrounded in mystery and intrigue. The history of the Cove tells us of dragons, trolls, goblins and the evil Master who stole children, livestock and, strangest of all, eggs from the Cove every year. Aided by the hideous monster, Tolldruck there seemed no stopping their evil plan. That was until, centuries ago, a Viking warrior came to Campbell’s Cove and vowed to rid it of all evil, and claim the prize offered by the mysterious church elders. The Viking succeeded and everything returned to normal. The evil was gone, and Campbell’s Cove was safe again… Until now.
When Peter and George visit Peter’s Granddad’s amazing mansion in Campbell’s Cove for the summer holidays they had no idea it would change their lives forever.
