John and Jack are mystified when they discover a cryptic warning on a medieval manuscript--a warning that is not only addressed to them, but seems to have been written by their friend, Hugo Dyson. But before they can discover the origins of the book, Hugo walks through a door in time--and vanishes into the past.

In that moment, the world begins to change. Now, the Archipelago of Dreams and our world both suffer under the reign of the cruel and terrible Winter King. Dark beasts roam the countryside, and terror rules the land.

John and Jack must travel back in time--from the Bronze Age to the library in ancient Alexandria to the founding of the Silver Throne--to find the only thing that can save their friend and restore both words. The solution lies in the answer to a 2,000-year-old mystery: Who is the Cartographer?

This book, and the series itself, is an increadible feat of ingenuity and prose. Even though I am at the college level and this book is mostly for teens, I find myself blown away by the originality in usuing all those old legends. Incorporating aspects of arthurian legend, real-world history, and various other myths has been done various times on lesser scales, but this book takes everything and adds it all up in a coherent manner. I have to agree that if one is not well versed in their myths, legends and even children's stories a lot of the novels will seem confusing, but if one has a firm grasp of these things, like i have since i have alwasy been interesting is such things, then this book is a gateway to a world larger than that created by J.K Rowling's Harry Potter series.

To summerize: this book and the others in the series are awsome!!!!!

Like the other books, this one is so full of time travelling and and the like that you really have to read carefully. If you're not super well-read in your history and literature as well as mythology, some of it might fly right over your head. In other words, it's a fantastic book. You know, except for the lack of Charles as we know him.

WOW! This book is great! Fantastic, fantabulous, amazing. Time travel makes everything confusing and complicated, and everybody keeps re-writing history! Like all the other books, it can get pretty confusing, so re-read it once or twice to really understand it.
