A murderous plot by a magical cabal. Three orphan siblings. One reluctant 12-year-old hero.
Jack is a boy whose world has been turned upside down. His parents were killed in an auto collision, and he hasn’t seen his brother or sister for nine years.
Then his life takes a crazy turn when he touches a golden telescope that reveals he has magical powers.
Jack learns there is a dangerous organization called The Dark Cabal responsible for the whole nightmare. This syndicate conspires to control all three children and use their powers for their evil purposes. Confronting them will bring Jack into contact with forces more terrifying than he ever could have imagined.
Fortunately, a mysterious visitor rescues him using a magic hat and takes him to his ancestral home in Dublin, Ireland.
There, after years of trauma-related asthma attacks, Jack finally feels like his life has meaning. Even though he is bewildered to discover that there is a world of magic he knows nothing about, Jack learns that he is the only person who can help find his Grandma Lydia, who is lost in the past, and solve the mystery surrounding his parent’s death.
Will he succeed in reuniting his family, or will The Dark Cabal achieve their goal to control the world?
