Overview

Middle-schoolers Gregory Guest and Yolanda Torres don't expect to use their strange lenses to return to the King Arthur story. But when their friend from that other world goes missing, they're afraid he will accidentally destroy their own reality. When the Taker and the Keeper travel back through the eerie tunnel, they find themselves in a completely unexpected story and a reality full of new dangers. A fire-breathing dragon seems determined to devour them, and Morgan le Fay is up to no good again. Even worse, according to the famous story, their friend Merlin will die a mysterious death. Must they allow that to happen exactly as foretold? This time, their adventures include an unexpected trek into the hazardous historical reality behind the Arthur stories. They face danger in both history and legend!

“A fascinating tale with elements of Camelot woven into a modern mix of science fiction and fantasy.… Will appeal to tweens because of the fantastical elements, and may even learn a thing or two about how legends come to be.”
