From Goodreads.com: Enter Alypium, a hidden world within our own where our old knowledge of magic is kept, and strange and fantastical creatures abound. It is a beautiful and mystical place, but things are caving in. the king is hypnotized and his castle turned on its side. The very Substance that holds our planet together has gone awry . . . and whispers tell of evil plans to destroy everything. Twelve year old Erec Rex has been yanked out of the world as we know it and thrown unwillingly into danger here. As he learns how to get by in this strange place, he discovers some truths about himself . . . and must learn the power of trust and love in order to save his mother, and all of Alypium. In this stunning tale packed with action, humor, a colorful cast of characters and a riveting plot, debut author Kaza Kingsley brings us into a land of danger and excitement. For Erec, it is a world that is eerily familiar and inevitably entwined with his future.
My Thoughts: Erec is a 12 year old boy who finds a hidden magical world. In this new world Erec starts to understand more about his own past. Along side his friend Bethany they go on a magical adventure to save the kingdom of Alympium. I read the first 4 in the series quickly so I can’t remember what happened specifically in the first book. I don’t want to give anything away. A good clean read for young and old.
