Erec Rex's adoptive mother is missing and he will do anything to track her down...even follow an oddly dressed girl down a secret tunnel in Grand Central station to an entirely different world. A world where magic is not only normal, but performed with remote controls. When he arrives he discovers that his mother is being held captive by one of the three rulers of Alypium and he must compete in a contest to become one of the next kings to save not only her, but the entire fate of the Kingdom of the Keepers. With the help of his new friends, Erec uses his intelligence, his special gifts and his physical prowess to become the winner of the contests. And even after almost being thwarted by the man who is trying to take over the kingdom entirely, Erec learns his fate lies in ruling Alypium.
