Jackson, Ellie, and Chase stumble upon an adventure of magic, mystery, and creatures unknown. They must fight to get back before it’s too late.
Summer has arrived, and for fourteen year old Jackson Fate this means one thing…Adventure. Unfortunately Ellie, his best friend and partner in crime, will be off to Louisiana.
Just when Jackson thinks he cannot take another day of his boring summer, his mother surprises him with tickets to Louisiana.
When Ellie and her muscle headed brother Chase arrive to take Jackson back to Lafayette, a heavy storm sends them on unexpected path. They have no choice but to stop in the empty town of Mermentau.
The dim lights of an old and tattered house look to be the only place of refuge. They are greeted at the door by a badly scarred old man, named Ukuk. He rambles about Mermentau and how it was once a village of magic and mystery that was forced underground by man. Before they can escape the troubled host, the storm worsens. As lighting strikes and trees begin to fall, the old man’s underground shelter is the only thing that can keep them safe. They would soon find out that Ukuk would be the least of their worries.
