This book reminded me so much of Angie Sage’s Septimus Heap series. Jamie, recovering from cancer, winds up inheriting an island in Ireland. Who would have imagined that the island holds a portal to another world - one that is in trouble and needs help. Jamie and his new friend Ramsey travel to Altair and attempt to reverse an attack from an enemy force.

Parts of this book seemed silly - two boys - seemingly with common sense - decide to go to a world and save it without so much as a second thought! However, there is a great villain and a decent account of the battle and what the two boys decide to do.

Overall, a decent story, so I’ll try for part 2...
