During a mysterious explosion two young brothers travel through a timecrack to another universe. Their parents have also disappeared - will the boys find them?
Archie and his young brother, Richard, like their parents before them, have disappeared through a timecrack into another universe. They arrive in Amasia, a land peopled by ancient tribes and New Arrivals from Old Earth.
Richard has a telepathic ability that enables him to communicate with other worlds, which may be the key to getting them back home, but it also puts his life in danger when Prince Lotane, the leader of the rebel Arnaks, decides he is a Shamra child who must be sacrificed to Almighty Zamah.
But the evil Anton Cosimo with his half-brother Sandan , also New Arrivals, take Richard hostage to help them steal the secret vallonium process.
During their time in Amasia the boys attend Harmsway College; meet Aristo the timecrack traveller from Sparta; Finbar the Guide from an Irish Island; Brimstone the indestructible androt; Beepoo the Rooter who lives in the Screaming Forest and saves them from the Arnaks.
Many others become involved with the boys, especially Dr Shah who is trying to create safe travel through timecracks. Only Richard can help him, but he is missing.
