Colin Jacoby is thirteen going on eighteen but stuck in the body of a ten-year-old. He can disappear into a fantasy novel for days. His twin sister Meghan despises reading anything without pictures and spends her days picking fights with the bullies that target her geeky brother. But when a mysterious talking book comes into their lives that neither of them can ignore, well, life is about to get a whole lot more dangerous, and maybe even deadly, as they awaken an ancient prophecy that has an entire magical world hunting them.
But is this prophecy even real?
Or are they just pawns in someone else’s game?
