When he answers an intriguing advertisement in the newspaper, James couldn’t possibly have known that it would thrust him into the middle of a quest that will test the limits of his intelligence and courage.
James, a high school senior, is not given any sort of explanation why or how he’s been brought to this strange, mystical world. He quickly realizes that he’s able to use the knowledge he’s gained through reading hundreds of books as well as the time spent in role-playing games to help him cope.
