Enter Alypium, a hidden world within our own where old knowledge of magic is kept, and strange and fantastical creatures abound. It is a beautiful and mystical place, but things are caving in. The king is hypnotized, his castle turned on its side. The very Substance that holds our planet together has gone awry…and whispers tell of evil plans to destroy everything.
Twelve year old Erec Rex has been yanked out of the world as we know it and thrown unwillingly into danger here. As he learns how to get by in this strange place, he discovers some truths about himself—and must learn the power of trust and love in order to save his mother, along with all of Alypium.
