Tom’s life is pretty ordinary until his grandfather disappears, but then everything changes. He starts dreaming about a mysterious woman who tells him, “It is time,” but he has no idea what she’s talking about. Then a package arrives from his grandfather, and strangers appear in the woods. Tom and his cousin, Beansprout, decide it’s time to investigate, and they accidentally cross to another world.
There Tom meets the woman who has been appearing in his dreams - Vivian, the Lady of the Lake. She tells him that he must travel to Avalon and wake King Arthur from his enchanted sleep. Something dark is stalking the old forest and Vivian needs Arthur’s help.
The Other is filled with danger, strange magic, and powerful allies, and Tom discovers the ancient stories are real – and so are ancient enemies. Tom’s future seems bound with Arthur’s, and his life may never be the same again.
A magical tale for older children and all lovers of Arthurian legend.
