IF YOU EVER WONDERED how future teens might interact with Arthurian figures, in terms of intellect and technology...
Two lab partners trek the coasts of the United Kingdom in 635 AD, encountering prototypes of the King Arthur myths. Their time-travel mission? Change the past just enough to forestall a 22nd century nuclear war. Their main weapon? Music. To meet the greatest Dark Age legends face to face is something any can dream of but few may hope to see.
Yet for young Skall & Dor, the chance of a lifetime is their sole alternative to chaos and despair. But history is a lonely place to pursue justice! Their compound's fuel all but gone, the two youths are equipped only with their portal-opening device & guitars. The duo then bravely leap into a time gate before school-turned-fortress can cut power to the lab.
FEATURES 120 DRAWINGS in the YA Brit fantasy tradition of "The Hobbit," "Alice in Wonderland," "How to Train your Dragon," etc., but much more intricate thanks to Photoshop. This illustrated novel is for advanced middle-schoolers to college students. The extensive CAPS & italics are screenplay convention when new characters or important perspectives are introduced, to help readability.
The pics are also adapted from storyboards, often giving 4 pics per square rather than just 1 (closer to triple the listed 120 pics.) And the hand-drawn pics are timed & placed to help reluctant readers stay focused, while sharpening their adult reading skills far beyond what a remedial comic book format could do.
SOON TO BE A MUSICAL FILM, this 1st edition with frost-blue cover won't be available for long. 2nd ed. seascape cover by Magdalena Adic now on e-book version.
