‘The mist was even thicker now. I could hardly see the ground. I began to worry about getting lost or even being unable to find my boat. Stumbling through the darkness, I walked into a scaffold pole. Then I stepped on something that creaked and broke underfoot. And I felt myself falling, falling... I must have screamed. But there was nobody to hear.’ Welcome to the magnificent island city of Embra, full of riches, knowledge and power. But for Jamie, Rob and Ali, the city has very different things in store.
