Fantasy fans will be delighted to delve into the mystical realm of K.E. Boyer's Ninelands-where all the elf worlds meet, time is measured in microseconds, and unbelievable sights are an everyday affair.
One morning, twelve-year-old Jamie Collins hears strange sounds coming from the attic. Being the son of a wizard and capable of magic himself, this doesn't seem too odd. But when he goes upstairs to explore, he discovers something totally unexpected. Minkel, a delightful, elfish creature, has come to take him to Ninelands, a place Jamie never knew existed.
Meanwhile Zard, the future head of the Ketch clan of evil wizards, has his own dark ambitions and has been threatening Jamie. He is determined to stop Jamie from coming to Ninelands. Suddenly Jamie finds himself caught in a dangerous web of magic and he must choose whether or not he will train to be a wizard and join his father in the fight against evil.
The first title in the Jamie Collins' Mystical Adventures series, Ninelands is filled with unforgettably imaginative characters and settings you'll love immediately.
