Alex, his pet hamster Skoodles, Zorrin the wizard, Tariq the bear, Flick Zorrin’s sister, Ikara the snake and Keeko the monkey, were on a mission to find Alex’s parents who are caught in another time zone. Their journey also became one of a rescue mission along the way, when it was quickly realized that a couple of Zorrin the wizard’s friends, a husband and wife team were killed by gargoyles who then kidnapped their son Luke. Rescuing Luke was now the priority, or else he too would be killed. Ikara and Tariq are a very slick duo, I love how they worked over Byloc, their workmanship is quite hilarious, making this book a very entertaining one. The group faced a battle filled with many dangerous mishaps along the way some with fatal consequences, but with their quick thinking and magic, a very exciting and magical adventure was on the way, nicely done.
