When middle-schoolers Gregory Guest and Yolanda Torres travel back to the land of legend, they find themselves in a completely unexpected story and a reality full of new dangers—including one very persistent dragon. This time, their adventures include an unexpected trek into the hazardous historical reality behind the Arthur stories.
"A fascinating tale with elements of Camelot woven into a modern mix of science fiction and fantasy.… Will appeal to tweens because of the fantastical elements, and may even learn a thing or two about how legends come to be."
