Charlz is a boy of fifteen who resides in the village of Tempstow in central Belaria. He lives with his Aunt, Eliza Sadinton, and her son Thamus.

In the north of Belaria, over which the Tropagian forest is spread, many a creature of the dark lurks behind the cover of trees. There a vile plot is being concocted by those who call themselves the rulers of the forest.

Charlz is oblivious to the dangers looming over him and his family and even an unexpected warning from one of the weird Future Stocker folks makes little meaning to him. Soon Charlz's world is going to be turned upside down as he and his family get sucked into the sinister plot.

Will they survive?
