Another year and the strange school looms over Calder Cove still. 




Despite protests from parents and some offspring, it puts out a call for potential pupils to walk through the gates. This year the headmaster issues a dire warning ... one that is ignored. Subsequently a portal to another dimension is opened, trapping five students inside. 


The only way out involves the retrieval of a much-coveted magical sword. Will everyone escape, or will they fall victim to those who reside there? 


Fantasy/adventure for all the family.
