Colin was a rather ordinary boy. Victoria, on the other hand, was rather extraordinary - if not a little strange. William was a hard-working boy (which was hardly surprising considering that his father was the Gate Keeper), while his sister Mio had it easy; she was born with magical talent. Sebastian, rather strangely, was an imaginary boy. Ms Tegit was a shapechanger, Rhiannon was probably a witch, the Old Traveller was a thousand years old and Rufus was old and blind (he was also a cat). But most importantly of all, Trixie Smatchit was a demon (even if only a little one). William was worried. An ancient evil was stirring out there in the Worlds. The signs were clear; the Stargazers Guild of Pulgam had seen them. Unfortunately, Pulgam was all alone - cut off from the Ways between the Worlds. But sometimes help can arrive from the strangest of places, however un-magical they may be. It all started when Colin and Victoria discovered that if you want to lead a quiet life, then you shouldn't follow a blind cat. Because it turned out that the universe was not only a whole lot bigger than they had ever imagined, but also, distinctly more magical. It was also rather dangerous.
