John and Jack are mystified when they discover a cryptic warning on a medieval manuscript—a warning that is not only addressed to them, but seems to have been written by their friend, Hugo Dyson. But before they can discover the origins of the book, Hugo walks through a door in time—and vanishes into the past. In that moment, the world begins to change. Now, the Archipelago of Dreams and our world both suffer under the reign of the cruel and terrible Winter King. Dark beasts roam the countryside, and terror rules the land. John and Jack must travel back in time—from the Bronze Age to the library in ancient Alexandria to the founding of the Silver Throne—to find the only thing that can save their friend and restore both words. The solution lies in the answer to a 2,000-year-old mystery: Who is the Cartographer?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Carries forward Owen's imaginative blending of mythology, Arthurian legends, and classic fairy tales…Owen ingeniously weaves together the two story lines, commingling the Grail legend, Odysseus, Circe and Calypso, Jack the Giant Killer, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, animals evocative of The Wind in the Willows, and twins from ancient times who become Merlin and Mordred. These elements are ingeniously combined in a compelling, literate fantasy story…Excellent.”  VOYA
“A lively jaunt through Arthurian legend, from Malory to Mark Twain, ensues. This series started strong and just keeps getting stronger, with clever reworkings of classic fantasy stories and complex, flawed protagonists…highly recommended.”  Kliatt
