In a story that jumps between the early days of the printing press and the 21st Century, Matthew Skelton tells the story of Blake Winters, who is passing time in an Oxford Library while his mother does research. When a mysterious book pricks him on the finger as he is running his hand along the shelves, he is caught up in a mystery centuries old. Parallel stories tell the tale of Endymion Spring, the original printer's helper who worked with Johann Gutenberg as he was perfecting the invention of movable type, and the book with his name on the cover that Blake finds. Blake soon realizes he is the only one who can read the book. It holds secrets that are coveted by many people and puts Blake and his younger sister, Duck, into great danger. Fans of mysterious, magical fantasies will enjoy this. The audiobook is narrated by Richard Easton and includes an afterward where Skelton describes what how he came up with the story.
