Alexander Moore was not ready for today, but who could possibly be ready for their mother to turn into a boar? How could anybody expect the pen they were using to contain some ancient genie? He wasn't expecting to be whisked into a completely different dimension, or learn how to fight monsters with a sword... and that's the least of his problems. Tricked by Alhkor, the genie trapped within the pen, Alex and his best friend Jacob are flung into another world, where beings of mythology and legend have lived for thousands of years untouched. Now they will need all the help they can get returning back to where they belong, to include the sly genie himself. But there is more to their journey than simply returning home; dangerous enemies lay in their path, and something much greater looms on the eventual horizon than mere monsters.
