Matt Mantrell's best friend, Saul, investigated his disappearance, only to find himself in the same fantastic world where lines of poetry worked magic. Saul's love of verse made him a top-rate wizard immediately, but also led him into conflict with the evil Suettay, a magical queen.

Christopher Stasheff is one-of-a-kind, the sort of writer whose books are both delightful and good for you. I've enjoyed Stasheff's writing from the first moment I came across it, and he never disappoints. Even non-fantasy readers tell me how much it means to them--and who am I to argue? Whether you follow the exploits of Matt of Merovence or the more epic exploits of The Star Stone, you'll have a fabulous time!
--Veronica Chapman, Senior EditorFrom the Inside Flap:
Saul didn't have so many friends that he would give one up without a fight. So when Matt disappeared, Saul started a search that led through Matt's kitchen window -- straight into a world of magic and desperate danger!
Saul discovered that in this world, his love of verse made him a wizard. But his newfound magic earned him a dreadful foe: Queen Suettay, a false monarch without peer for wickedness and corruption. A fearsome sorceress herself, with armies steeped in evil ready to obey her every sinful command, she determined to break Saul's growing power -- or win his soul for Satan.
Fortunately, Saul earned some stalwart friends, as well: Gruesome the troll and young Squire Gilbert; Saul's own guardian angel, and the beautiful -- if unsubstantial -- Angelique. But he'd need the help of the mysterious Spider King to spin a web strong enough to trap this tyrant!
