When Jack's dog is kidnapped right in front of him, his world collapses. He is lonely: his mother has died, his father lives abroad and he is at the mercy of his selfish aunt.
Then he meets a strange girl – Lev – who casually tells him she’s from another dimension. When she asks him to join a Secret Society, a bizarre adventure begins. Together with Lev and his best friend Fidel, Jack finds himself embroiled in a battle for the Phosgenite.
As he comes face to face with the evil Shadow Lord – Skia Gray – Jack discovers that he is capable of far more than he ever imagined.
"Wonderful! Imaginative, exciting and funny. Highly recommended!"
