Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Aimed at children, this epic fantasy adventure is set in the mythical and peaceful land of Aralon and centers on its king's courageous struggle to protect his people from the warlike Morlin people. To forever quell the violence and bloodshed, the desperate King Francis requests that the royal alchemist Aeschylus devise a means by which Francis could control time. In that way, he can become the master of the universe and decide exactly who shall live or die. But as is the way with fairy tales, things don't go exactly as planned when the raven-haired witch Karnissa gets involved. Meanwhile, a page falls in love with a princess and endeavors to win her love by proving that he is just as brave as his older brother, a famous knight.
