Tobi the elf lives on an island, not just any island but Cloud Island—the island where the magnificent Tree that controls Time towers proudly in the sky. This is, however, not enough for the young inquisitive Tobi. His heart yearns to live on Lower Land, amongst the fairies, witches, giants, and all the other magical creatures. When his friends Annamay and Pipe help him to realize his dream, they are all unaware of the danger brewing in the prison below Lower Land. The guardian wizard, Garthian, has been poisoned by none other than a prisoner called Evilius. Evilius knows of an ancient secret held by the Tree of Time, a secret that could lead to the destruction of Lower Land and life as they all know it, one that he intends on using for exactly that purpose. Lower Land will not be the adventure Tobi expected it to be, but rather a quest for survival, not only for his own life, but for the entire Lower Land and all of Time.
