The solitude of the hilltop location and the distance from civilization is exactly what the Bannards want.The teens secretly explore the castle after they figure out how to release the drawbridge. Brittani, the eldest sibling, encounters an invisible male presence, a ghost? She discovers some of the mysteries of the castle, such as powerful protective amulets, tapestries that can show the future, and paintings that can be entered as portals to the past and future for adventures in Europe. Their escapades include time-travel throughout England, dragons, knights, battles and rescues, and interaction with Camelots royalty long forgotten by the world.
