On arrival at Nexhoath, strange things start to happen and Jai realises that this is no ordinary school. The headmaster, Mr Drake, is not what he appears and Jai's new friends, Hugo and Seal, are sure that he is some sort of fiend...the children that enter Mr Drake's office are never the same once they come out again.
