Thirteen-year-old Jason Walker somehow falls into a hippo tank at the local zoo and finds himself in a parallel universe ruled by a wizard called Maldor. When he learns one of the syllables of the word that could defeat the wizard, he somehow is enlisted in an epic journey to find the other syllables and heal the land. Strangely enough, Rachel, another teen from what the locals call the beyond, arrives at the same time and joins him. There is much magic and adventure and reliance on various skills and bravery as is typically found in this sort of book. Although the book's beginning was a bit awkward and I knew little about the main characters, Jason and Rachel grow on you, though, and I started to care about them as the book moved to its conclusion. There will be more to come since this is the first of three books devoted to this series.
