All Will Blackwood ever wanted was a little adventure. A fantasy addict and apprentice contractor in New Orleans who is struggling to make ends meet, he has suffered from terrible panic attacks since the death of his father. Will would give anything to escape to the world of Tolkien, or Hogwarts, or any of the wondrous realms he reads about.
Late one night, his life is changed forever when he and his brothers receive a belated inheritance: a staff with a mysterious stone on top, a pair of rogue’s bracers, and a sword that Will can barely lift. Searching for an explanation, it is not until a strange key whisks the brothers across time and space, into a terrifying version of New Orleans ruled by wizards, that the brothers accept the truth and undergo a perilous journey home. With the help of an alluring but deadly adventuress, they must break into the keep of a sorcerer known for his love of diabolical games, find a trio of enchanted talismans, and somehow defeat an evil wizard who can raise legions of the undead to do his bidding.
It seems Will has found his adventure. But will he live to tell the tale?
