In a unique retelling to the classic fairy tale "Jack and the Beanstalk", Piers Anthony and J.R. Rain take you back to the magical land beyond the clouds. Back to the land of the Giants. Back to adventure and sorcery and awe-inspiring wonder.
In the real world, Jack works for a jerk. Luckily, the pretty receptionist makes his days bearable. But when Jack discovers he's been fired, his simple life crumbles around him; that is, until he comes across the magic beans.
Now with a giant beanstalk growing outside his downtown New York apartment, Jack has a choice to make: follow the beanstalk up or pretend it's not there. After all, he does seem to be the only one who can see it. Moreover, the beanstalk almost beckons him...
Putting aside his fears, Jack climbs out from his apartment window and onto the beanstalk, where climbs up and up and up... finally emerging through the clouds and into a land of dreams. Literally.
Almost immediately, he's confronted by a hungry giant... and someone else. Someone he never expected. Someone he had long admired from afar. Now a team, Jack and Harriet seek answers to their dilemma, and find themselves in the middle of an age-old war for the land beyond the clouds. Battling evil kings, gods and giants, Jack is about to discover that he's much more than he ever dreamed... and that he may never return home again. And that's just fine by him.
After all, the land beyond the clouds isn't that bad. Of course, he just has to survive first...
