      Dinosaurs still roam, Warrior's fight for what is good and a ship that travels between worlds.. Christopher Crowther is eleven when he first hears of the world Asora. On a day out he meets a man called Jack Atalas who tells him of this other world. Atalas invites Christopher to stay in Asora at the Greenhearts school where he would learn how to use a sword and be educated about Asora. Christopher agrees and easily convinces his father to take him to Dover where he is met by the boy Brock Molp, an older and very eager student of Greenhearts. They board the Lone Wolf, an old ship captained by a man who hasn't shown his face for almost twenty years. As the ship journeys through a rainbow on into Asora, Christopher meets Marcus and Fawn who soon become his friends. He sees creatures that he thought were long extinct. When he arrives at Greenhearts he meets Barin, Kerrick, Maguna, Master Ortamus and the cruel Sorophin who tortures the students with his magic. With his new entertaining friends, patriotic Marcus, daydreamer Fawn, upper class Samuel and head strong Poppy, he soon settles into life the other side of the rainbow. However he notices that one of the male students has vanished and his teachers are keeping it quiet. The boy isn't the last. The only clue as to where the children are going is a four armed creature called a Levison. To his shock, Christopher also discovers the true reason why Atalas invited him to Asora - however Atalas swears him to secrecy. Christopher agrees though is curious as to why.
